he coward

August 26, 2015

he once stopped by
and promised to resolve
my shattered bones.

he dried my tears,
placed a candle in my heart,
with no flame.

he proclaimed,
I will never abandon you.
then he left.

he left to have sex
with violence
like John Wayne.

he showed up
again, but never
returned.
