Never Again
WolfmansBro

This is the last poem I write about you-
 1
Dark muse,
 2
Usher of pain,
 3
Conduit of sorrow
 4
 
 
Never again will
 5
I allow you to force me
 6
to summon all the regrets,
 7
the remorse, the possibilities.
 8
I commit them to a cell-
 9
This page,
 10
where they will live out their years
 11
sovereign from me
 12
 
 
You are a scab on my heart
 13
I insist on picking
 14
with pencil scrawlings
 15
in a hidden black book-
 16
I want to let it heal,
 17
So this is the last poem I write about you
 18

his heart was jumping like a kangaroo
like a beast in a cage in an old Dutch zoo
it was hopping and thumping in wooden shoes
