You
Let me fall after
I
Propped you up

You
Promised me
And then betrayed
Me
Sending the evidence
Disguised as a gift

Did you forget
Me?
Did you forget
Yourself
So badly

Your head a whirlwind,
A flurry of perpetual
Oceanic storms

Of shipwrecks
And Victorian-era conundrums
Of self-flagellation
And smelling salts
?

You

Cruel, or
Self-obsessed?
Selectively stupid?

You

Worth so much more than
Me
Or anybody
In time
In attention
In space

You

Let me fall
Slicked me open with your sickle of selfishness
Made me bleed
Squeezed your sourness into my wounds
Vinegar
