Nail in the Coffin

You said it was over
and called in a lawyer
sealing off futures
and parsing pasts
the choicest memories
claimed as your own

I couldn’t fight you
the decay of years
layered the latest version
over the one I loved
a loss reanimated
till you finally left

Box me up if you must
bury the bruises of time
and save the sonnets
just don’t leave me
thinking there’s a chance
the dead will rise again
