unsure

| March 24th, 2007

not sure where to begin
the end is such a dismal place
this energy we exchanged
festers in wounds unkempt
traces of love’s distance
i gave you myself, as i knew how
and it wasn’t enough
harsh words close the cocoon
fill the gap with indifference

all these broken needs
i’ve smoked so many cigarettes
my breath a hard whisper
these tears come
at too late an hour
far too late for “i’m sorry”
but i needn’t apologize
what little can that do now
it’s all falling apart
my empire of sanity
smashed under foot
of selfish reason,
of misunderstanding

please leave a reply
