A Sonnet or something like it

Permit me no grace if you can find me

Arm cocked back, throwing stones at panes of glass

Falling shards so sharp, they could cut the past

Maybe I do deserve blood’s warm embrace

Give me no solace if you can find me

Passing judgment while I’m slow to reflect

Shattered mirrors to count the tears I wept

Anything to pursue being heartless

Betrayals symptoms showed, I missed the signs

Then saw reservations, he had with you

Funny when you pretend you even tried

Leaving preservation for something new

Now leftovers taste like spoon fed lies

Hard pills to swallow, my bitter truths
