i am finished

~I am finished~

Hate floats below my smile,
masking deep pain boiling
just below my throat;

A line through time is binding;
each end a new beginning
held by two…

But where is my end? When do
I get to pull myself this way
And that?

The heart can only take so much
dissonance before it breaks open
and releases…

I am finished

a bad wife

~a bad wife~

I’ve been a bad wife
moving without thought, forever forward,
impossibly looking for that which
eludes me

Without measure of my actions
I’ve walked the line between right and wrong
and results have never weighed much
upon my mind

repercussions ring now, at the end
of all things,
with loud fever; darkening the doorstep
of my heart

how does one recover
from the stain
of causing such irrevocable pain
and misery?

cruelty that dwells within my spirit
haunts the steps of that which is light
