‘You’ by Amelia Loulli

You came in the night  put your hands around her cheeks and yanked her from my nipple  or if You didn’t You stole all the food     fed Yourself     on the bread I baked  that afternoon        grew bigger    or  if not      You hid    in the corners  stealing glances   of moments You called mistakes    warned would ruin  made me shiver   or    if that wasn’t You       You were somewhere all the time  getting closer until    in the end      I could hear You whisper    feel my hair  parting for Your breath     and when You came to face us   I wouldn’t say  You were black   shadow    more the sharp winter light    stabbing   through the windscreen   on an early morning drive     sending me  swerving    burning   my eyes
