Muddy Water

each moment before this one, considered;
thoughtless, wordless lonely minutes  
churning out silent days in reflection
and guarded anticipation
 
yet, I am no better off now
for having passed them under the guise
of relentless rebuilding;  
brand new, but no better off at all
 
still bringing savage accusations  
against my own character  
on your behalf, just in case  
you’ve not noticed my imperfections
 
and, lest I should be forgotten
in the familiar, painful ways
I have always been forgettable,
I remain compelled to remind you of me
 
I’ve acted too boldly, perhaps; as if  
the outcome can be held, even loosely
within these empty hands,  
simply because my heart is so full
 
cautiously awaiting the solid answers  
to questions I’ve stopped asking;
though the message reads clear enough,
my acceptance is muddy water
