Turned My Back

Posted: March 29, 2018 in Uncategorized

What have I done to love that love should treat me so
how have I aggrieved tender mercy that I am denied
what sorrow did I inflict that I am so afflicted?

I turned my back on love now love denies me
my failings and excuses wither under a pale sun.

’Twas fear finally fell me made me into this
a casualty a victim at last of toxic intimacy.

Even victims must account for themselves
yet the guilty are victims too
we are all victims of love withheld from us and by us.
