enough to be me

Forgiveness

is elusive

ethereal entity.

Because you meant so much

I can only forget so little.

I can bear the thousand daggers

tap-dancing on my back;

the frozen void snowed over

where my heart used to be.

You say I can, you say I should

but can’t you see?

I’m not strong enough

to be me.
