a front view of where we live


you pulled me up from the ashes
you offered me ease
i clung to your presence
time and time we acknowledged
up til’ one time
it all just seemed different
you take no account that I was there
they scrawled over your lips
denounce the lies
what did I ever do,
to this day i still have no clue
you crippled me badly
it was all a jape
it’s amazing that you build me up
then propel me back to the ground
time has been good on my behalf
but i’ll never pay heed to your abandonment
i was left behind,
but i won’t be,
ever again.
