Unsettled

Abstract Thoughts

He came back today.
I was not cheered to see him.
He looked as bad for wear
As the last time the beast chose to be him.
My revulsion returned-
I fear I have not changed.

I felt time slip backward,
My thoughts became enmired-
Songs, sights
Someone I should forget
And cannot.
A time that I regret
And have not
A way to make right.

The concentrated drops of brilliance,
Gathered in moments.
Sanctified in verse.
Arrested in tragedy.
Lost in bitterness.
I cling to broken pieces
That can never be repaired.

He came back today
Like an unconfessed sin
A second chance at pity-
I failed the test again.
