Ash

Gather ribbons of regret

Burn them high upon the pyre

Watch them snake and twist

Gasping trying to revive

Love that is exhausted

 

Jealously dressed in silence

Cloaked in resentment and rote

Gas-lighted and relinquished

Misogyny wrapped in promises

Independence traded for trust

 

Silent thoughts of resolution

Forgiveness too fresh to bind

Cruelty woven between ignorance

Hope unworthy of redemption

Discarded, diminished to ash.
