how deep do i have to dig?Mature

how deep do i have to dig
before this grave is deep enough
for all the things we’ve done to each other?
even after the evidence has been burned
to ash and soot and there’s nothing but hot embers
left in the fire pit, i still have truckloads to dispose of.
i need a grave deeper than the ocean, vaster than
the space above our atmosphere, wider than the gaping
holes you’ve left in me.

The End
