-abandonment answers-

March 7, 2014


you’ve abandoned

me at every turn-

even as i begged…



you watched, smug,

convinced i

deserved it…

instead of throwing

out a life preserver,

you walked away…

only returning when

i’d out-swum the sharks,

certain you’d done well-

certain you’d get the credit….

once, i wished to be like you…

now, i never want to see you again.

and it breaks me inside

each time i think of you.

you didn’t save me.

i did.
