New Poem 10-2-09

It Lies Dying (written 10-2-09)

Salvation came

with a few steps

You toward me

scooping me from

the wreckage

I owed you always

for being the one

When no one else

cared to be

The illusion of

commitment

trust

engulfed us for

decades

In love with

the false representations

of who

We were

The tower crumbled

Death moved in

And from the ashes

a new me

Does the truth

sit well

the me who is

no longer the

placation of your needs

There for the

taking and leaving

Is there value

in only accepting

what sits well

with you

Where is

the trust

and commitment
