I’m writing this poem

Because it wasn’t enough for you;

Poetry.

 

It tried doing you justice

But even the pencil was a burning rod.

 

You couldn’t find the words that pushed like thunder

Out of your heart.

You dared not even let a breath hold

The responsibility of your shame.

 

It should be your

Hand on this paper, holding it steady

While lyrics rush

Like a mighty dam let loose.

 

But no.

It’s me.

 

I,

Who don’t even write poetry

Because it feels like only the deepest depths

Of my soul

Hold the power to conjure up beautiful songs

And I don’t want to shed light down there –

To release the demons and collect the dust.

 

But you left.

 

You went to the darkness

And now this is my only way to bring you back

Even though it was never enough.
