Red

With furrowed brows

I sit…

Contemplating.

The bright red cape you bore is gone.

Bitterness consumes you,

The only red I see now

Is in your eyes.

You forgot what you said,

My heart does not.

How do I help you?

How do I stop the hurt?

You push us away,

I have tried to help…

You push some more…

Close to the edge,

I can’t take much more.

My Conundrum is you.

Pick up the cape

For gosh sake

Be the example,

Be the man

I used to know…

Or thought I knew.
