A Few Nails

 

You can’t turn it back, you know,

that clock;

can’t retract those words,

pretend that they weren’t spoken.

Oh, what a fool I must have been

to be taken in

by such a long-term fiction

constructed from the mind of you.

I can’t forget,

can’t forgive

such a conspiracy of deceitful silence.

Do you wish you’d kept it going,

the illusion,

the pretence?

Does it really matter anyway?

Those words, after all,

were nothing more

than a few extra nails

hammered into a coffin of something

that was a long time

DEAD!
