I never resisted

and you pushed me through the door,
in the summer fucking rain.

My love of the sea,
you left me in a world,
full of broken homes.

You left me,
but you left the light on,
so I picked myself

up off the floor,
faced the light,
and danced with it.

I put daffodils
between myself
and the light source

and the flowers
cast upon me, blackly,

against a living
and breathing

As I
and read.

I worry,
but I dance.
And I hope.

You are gone,
but I can sometimes still feel you,
like you are tugging on a rope.
