Something about forgetting

For me, for you
I would have asked
To make public to
Loved ones who ask

For you, for me
You’ve confused
A lover and mother
They don’t belong


For me, for you
I’ll stop trying
There’s no middle
It’s becoming fatal

For you, for me
There’s a limit
Love is conditional
Love is pain

Bereft, adrift

For me, for you
Time is accelerating
A hardened heart
No reset button

For you, for me
Good intentions mis-read
Apathy, anger the same
It’s easier, easiest that way

For us
Decay gray
