All or Nothing

 

Impossible

is everything

all the time

with you.

No middle ground,

just black and white.

Always,

or never.

 

Wonder why

you’re all inside,

holding your

precious woundings.

I’m alive,

no concubine,

but I’m slowly fading.

 
Won’t

you

come

save

me?

 

Mesmerized.

Occupied.

Don’t act like

you didn’t notice.

Time ticks away,

the waves

recede,

and the flowers

break the surface.

 

Wipe away

the spiders

that weave

your eyes closed.

I’m out here

naked

and alone,

right

where you left me.

 

Don’t pretend

you

don’t

know.

You were silver,

when they always

wanted

gold.

 

That’s okay,

I know

you were made

for greater things.
