Poem: Shadow Boxing with a Virgo


cats_fight

I stand and watch you fighting
Bewildered, armed with death
You thrust and parry, cleaving
The space that held my breath
But I have long surrendered
My words have turned to sand
The sword that wounds in darkness
Does not lie in my hand
My arms and heart are open
Though bleeding all the time
My darling, please relinquish
That blindfold on your mind
