Incomplete

i laid my ear to your chest
and listened close to your heart….
it whispered thoughts of
loneliness and pain…
of regrets it would not fathom
nor admit…
of a love that flickers
and wavers…similar to
the phases of the moon –
waning and waxing…
of an affection
whose flames continuously
struggle to burn…

your heartbeat sounded like
a series of measured stacatto…
like shortened beaths at intervals…
why do you tolerate
my company?…aren’t you spent
from doing so?…how long will
you try to endure your suffering?…
this unhappiness that i bring you
only causes your heart to break…
is it because i’m incomplete
as you have described me?
like a puzzle
missing its  pieces…
