Look back in anger

 

Madness.jpg

 

Ex

 

He seethes and rages

Coiling tightly like a ball

Of serpents

Every moment of happiness

She gets

Is a hot knife in

His gut

Every look she gives that

He           never           got

Every secret, knowing smile

Never his

Is a cold, wet slap to his barely shored up

Ego

Like winter waves against a crumbling pier

 

He imagines what they

Do

Together

She and this other             her

Deus ex machina

Whom she looks at in

That way

What has he got that makes her look at him

T h a t  way?

He scrolls downward through their

Endless

Happy

Moments

Wanting to

Break

Something

Wanting to take

Back

What escaped               his grasp

While his       eyes

Were on the mirror.

 

 

 

Words and image are my own.
