I Saw You Breach The Wall

I saw you and the rest

you brought around

I carried the knowledge

and the jest laid on me

for a test, of trust

I saw you breach the wall 

and expose all

of who you are – were

still unchanged,

today proven facts

In fact,

I expect never 

to see the moment

of change arrive

as your silence insists

it was just in jest, in case-

why bother, you know the rest

I stand unchanged

in the face of pain

gone to the ether

and back again

I stand unchanged 

from womb to age

eyes darting dark 

with unsettled rage

a marriage made

an x-ray in shame

even towards heaven’s


even despite

a funeral in display

your bitter bite came,

even as the preacher


the bitter bite came,

it came, like a stalker insane

despite that grief-stricken

awful day.

“The best thing for being sad ... is to learn something. That's the only thing that never fails. ... That is the only thing which the mind can never exhaust, never alienate, never be tortured by, never fear or distrust, and never dream of regretting.” --- T.H. White
