Where Do I Begin? – Written July 2011 (Aged 36)

Where Do I Begin?

you let me down
by using words –
that were never kept
which were an abuse –
of my nature
is this –
how you’ll approach the future?
you hear words
and i guess,
that more of less you do care
but is not –
a way to live your life
it is only ever others –
that feel the thrust of the knife
you assume –
that there i no need to say sorry
and i worry
because it is true –
and there has never been more reason
to do so
but you let me down
and now i want a carefully crafted end
it is always hard to explain the feeling
and i have to wonder, where do i begin?
