damage done
and swept,

regrets outraged
and wept,

still wiping sweat
from lips-

incase another
ill word
slips.

still mopping up
my mess.

till floor’s no
longer
wet-

what i give
is what
i get.

come for
me,

don’t comfort
please,

while on both
knees

it’s best i
learn

to rely on
me

for deep
relief,

to balm
this inner burn,

it means so
much

you wish to
please
,

to quench my
thirst

but
help me
turn to me fi
rst?
