Not Ours

.
with nothing left between us grief devours
dismantles resolute as doubts pervade
we disappear in days no longer ours

.
resentments stalls in robust searing showers
reigns heavy on this landscape’s masquerade
with nothing left between us grief devours

.
effects engraved with rice-encrusted flowers
divided into fractions disarrayed
we disappear in days no longer ours

.
still-life is sorted packed in cardboard towers
as broken portraits hang in halls betrayed
with nothing left between us grief devours

.
through wicked tug-of-war commitment cowers
enumerates each memory surveyed
we disappear in days no longer ours
.
voracious weight of wedded lonely hours
lamenting weary promises waylaid
with nothing left between us grief devours
we disappear in days no longer ours
