Past Vs Present Vs Future

In this silence
in which we hide
I've had to consider
I am blocked
by past heartbreak

Opening a small wedge
fearful the array
of my entirety
could make an easy target
when launching
critical barbs
that highlight the deficiencies
of my complicated being

The love I won
that became subverted
has never had closure
and every time I resolve
to leave it where it was
the dreams penetrate
my sleeping mind
a force greater than my will
pushing me
to recognize
that ignorance
can't solve it

But how will I tell you this?
How can I warrant your blessing
and make you see
that if I face this fear
maybe the final chapter
could be to a current benefit?

I never knew why
I was so disposable
and I would rather have a clue
if it should happen again.
