Tonic​/​You Move

from by Derek Piotr



you arrived like a tonic
when I needed most

you make complete sense

my heart cries out
after you leave

there is weight
behind my ribs
that you must move

there is weight
that you must move
through the world now

(I look for hints of you
in everyone
all the time)

there is nothing I can do
but watch you move
