and yet you walked in and
through my dusty corridors 
and locked-up rooms with
easy familiarity:
You were an unwanted guest,
settled deep in
my worn leather armchair heart
and when finally you left,
I found that as new lovers do,
you had left pieces
of yourself scattered:
the taste of half-drunk earl tea 
(unsweetened) beneath my tongue,
indigo bite marks like chips 
in the paint of my pale skin,
whispered wishes and sweet nothings
tucked between my vertebrae.
you must have forgotten
that when you moved out,
I had to find a way 
to live there again
(alone)
