Undone

I roll the disappointment around my tongue…

Like yesterday’s milk left out in the sun

Oh how you reek of things never begun

A person who forgot how to be…

 

someone

 

 

Fail me now you bitter thing

For you are as flimsy as the promises you sling

 

Because night has come to swallow you whole

 

For into that bottomless pit, you stole

Into that tiny little pinhole

You call life

 

 

Why…

 

I see it now

as clearly as if

I were

 

Your

 

Only

 

Strife

 

 

Remind me again…

That taste of your fear

Whenever life comes too near

 

 

Why…

 

And just so we are clear…

 

That fear

 

Was always

Sincere

 

Still…

 

 

You…

 

You bore me to death

 

For you are as bereft of color as that vintage pose

For I see in you now…

there was never anything to expose

 

No mystery

 

Beneath all that…

 

Melrose
