claw in the rib cage

You

You

I wasn’t at all convinced to start with

A teeny tiny part of me wanted to believe

Like a fresh breath of air

You made me feel at ease

And now I realise

You don’t text or reply

As devils claws are too long

For a keyboard to type

Unless

It is something

The devil can respond to

Eat and feast

Belong to

Claw in the ribcage of my descended heart

Charcoal smudged eyelashes

I

AM

Falling

apart
