alright


i’ll play your game


for now


although i think you will make sure


that i fail


somehow inconsequential


to my actions


or inaction



i don’t know how to say what i’m feeling


but i’m much more afraid


of what i am not feeling -


nothing


void


just a great lack of emotion


i’m fearful that i have reached that point


of no return



i know exactly when the void set in


there while driving on the darkened pacific coast highway


my eyes were on the rainy road


but i was all ears



and what i was hearing was atrocious


i was stunned


just stunned


to hear what fell from your mouth


you!


your mouth!!!


the mouth that used to taste


the shimmering waves


of this body



that same mouth ranted


that mouth screamed concepts


that i thought were long dead



ideas that you failed to profess


that you possessed


back before i knew about complicated



so alright


i’ll play your game for a while


a very, very short while


but it may already be


too late for you


and too late


for me too

"the mouth that used to taste

Great description of a relationship gone sour. Very well done.
