Washed Out

~A Tight Cord~
The first arrow  
shattered my trust.
The second arrow
was mine to shoot.
The third arrow
pierced my heart.  
Maybe you knew  
we were toxic:
walking hand-in-hand  
towards perdition.  
I never told you how
my cord was wrapped  
around you—
I still can't.  
~Oil and Water~
They don't mix,  
and neither did we.  
I lost my soft edges
for a long time, and truthfully
they never fully rounded again.
Despite that, I found myself.  
I want you to know
because I'm proud  
of the parts you disliked.  
~Dark Matter(s)~
The heartache of our lost
friendship hurt longer  
and far worse than any other
failed relationship.  
I told you my secrets.  
I kept yours.  
We were perfect...
until we weren't.  
You decided this fate, this
unbearable outcome.  
This breach of trust  
so hideous, I too would like
to hide my eyes.
