Harsh words brought hurt,
humiliation, rendering null
the rules, relationship would
claim, as ridicule did crowd
the heart, caught in brittle
chains; changing who you
were; giving birth to some
thing new, brazen and
unknown; bone-hard your
mind now drew, a pretty
list of platitudes to pay
her back in pain, demand
translation from the heart;
your tongue would still
deride. Like tarragon
which runs amok, when
not brought to the spade,
the woman drowned
in water, tears; you watch
and will not say, that every
single action, each sacrifice
she made was obvious,
connected; the sky wept
tears of shame. Like bitter
orange, scented, no oil as
balm to grace, in desperate
asking she beseeched, some
answers; all betrayed.
In darkness deeply gathered,
desire from long-lost days,
as memory like locusts
spread; the lunatic you made.
