Day 116 – Forgive Me For I Know

You shouldn’t read me
as often as you do;
though it’s written for me
it’s colored through you.
Eyes like a filter
to process what’s mine,
drunk on a very old secret.

You shouldn’t be reading
as often as you are;
keep it this fresh,
you’ll never heal that scar-
the story repeated
for a thousand days
but never enough to believe it.

Find someone else
to read at your leisure;
some other artist’s pain
to treasure –
I have too much left
to dig it all out
just because you need it.
