When I
Left you alone
You grew large, expanding
Until you seeped through all my heart’s
Chambers.

When I
Indulged the fantasy, dreaming
Of leaving, you cajoled
With verses from
Afar.

  1. something about “Chambers” on a line by itself is so isolating. especially with the lead up “all my heart’s.” I expected something emotional and you gave me anatomy.

  2. “You cajoled / with verses from / afar” is a rich, exotic-sounding description. I wondered if perhaps you were referring in this piece to something deeper and more abstract than a person? I like the idea that it becomes all encompassing when you don’t focus on it and does it’s best to make you hold on when you consciously try to leave. Like obsession or addiction.
