This poem breaks my heart

It’s been a night of Louise Glück’s poems. This poem breaks open my heart like hammer to a coconut shell.

Hesitate to call
By Louise Glück

Lived to see you throwing
Me aside. That fought
Like netted fish inside me.
Saw you throbbing
In my syrups. Saw you sleep. And lived to see
All that all flushed down
The refuse. Done?
It lives in me.
You live in me. Malignant.
Love, you ever want me, don’t
