Unraveling

Unraveling

As I watch
my world unravel
before my eyes
I am paralyzed
unable to move
Incapable of stopping
what is already
in motion
 
How can one instant
change what is
chiseled in stone?
A look, once of love
now that of contempt
Foreign, alien
Tender words
explosive, weaponized
 
One person’s
prerogative
sabotaging
what was precious
Destroying happiness
and for what?
Sadistic pleasure
or masochism?

Respect – An Acrostic Poem

Resembling someone I no longer know

Empty, devoid of emotion, almost inhumane

Seeing you, grudgingly, in your moment of glory

Pumped victoriously with ego

Endorphins swimming with energy

Circling the waters like a shark

Targeting your catch of the day
