To be anywhere
but here,
in this moment
at this time.
To experience 
any sensation
except this heaviness
in my chest.

My feet have begun
to move
without permission
from my

No time for packing.
My eyes search for
any view except
this ugliness
that faces me.

I can’t stay
I can’t sit here
with this
with you.

My heart,
my soul
have already left.
My body is
all that remains.
