The Second Meditation
"I'm not your love" I hear you say
and it's strike three for disappointment
just like all the times before
but without the smooth maneuvers,
games, and petty tricks.
Queue the slow cry,
the salt of sweat and tears,
sugar, spice, and summer jazz
mingle with the selfish loss
of what we couldn't have.
And so I search my checklist:
Frustration? Damn straight.
Where are you, Anger?
Tough to be angry when what I knew
was right's all wrong. "It's for the best"
and "we'll be friends" echo twice again.
Words! Such bullshit words,
but this time, heard from you,
I know that just this once,
those bullshit words are true.
No bets or bluffs, no poker face.
Just all cards down
and nothing really lost.
And that nascent spark of anger
