Petits III

you know
very well
all that i mind
and yet you ask
as i continue
to lie
that which you know
will never be true


glass tears
hot and newly wrought
failing to melt my resolve
to keep gathering the shards of my foolish hope


a shared denial

sweet and quietly treacherous

on the edge -precarious

each ready with a protest

each steeling for the impending goodbye

waiting for the other

to be “the bad guy”

    I think I’m beginning to get your rhythm now, I hope so, otherwise I’m not understanding your heart! I’m never the ‘bad guy’ I’m always the absolutely awful one after I’ve tried to tempt the other guy into being ‘the bad guy’!

Thank you for your valuable comments! =)
