Your base accusations thrown
Up into the light, then fired
Off one by one where others
Out of the loop mock and destroy.
You should have called, asked
While listening, looked again
For the rainbow's wraps between us
Where we had left them, uninterpreted.
Instead, you rose, phoenix-like voice
Raised, accusing me of stealing
Your opinions, inflating your ego,
Stealing away your personality.
Baseless, I thought, until I couldn't
Find a way between us with a flashlight.
I couldn't find the boxes of photos I
Had left in hiding, the photos of pain.
I looked for the boxes of joy, missing
The ominous spaces, the boxes of sorrow
Which had been sealed by us both. What dark
Adjustments were made by you without me?
Now we step like opposing forces armed
To the teeth, with no base to function from
As the war begins. Why? Some blame time
Which was never my friend. Is it over?
