I would never say

I would never tell you
how you poisoned my future’s memories
fish floating belly up in bad water,
the fertile earth a wasteland

I would never say
how you took time like precious crystal
smashing it forever
I’m still stepping on the shards

I would never tell you
how much pain you caused others
drawing your own around you as
a cloak of thorns

I’ll just
try and shrug off my own cloak
tend to my bleeding feet
and bathe myself in the pure waters
of the sky

You wouldn’t listen anyway
