Abandonment

 

 

Il ne faut pas voir la réalité telle que je suis, 1923

Max Ernst

 

 

If you knew what I now know

 

and have been through

 

you would not throw

 

away a relationship so easily.

 

 

I fell for you

 

I thought maybe you did for me too

 

this was not my first mistake

 

it will not be my last.

 

 

I wanted to gather you close

 

in an embrace that defies poetry or prose

 

you shrugged me off with curious arguments

 

I am now haplessly awaiting my next debacle.
