Dust

Every benefit of the doubt

Given

Every possible excuse for you

Made

And then, in a moment of weakness

At my absolute, messiest low:

Marriage dissolving

Heart in pieces

Scattered around my house

Among the dust bunnies

Crying in the dark,

I reach out to you.

Your reply never comes.

Don’t pretend we’re friends.

I don’t have anything left to feed your ego.
