The heat intensifies the isolation

Five days since you were missed in bed

Now all signs show permanence

Confusion and upset circle around

They’ve moved on now

Supposed drunken one offs

Now the way things are

No response shows a lack of care 

Too many tries, too little, too late

Self-inflicted loss interpreted as hate

The dams swell but nothing bursts

Lips stapled when asked about the hurt 

It didn’t work and you don’t work

But I’ll wait for another try

It can be a break

Does that make you break?

Enjoy it.
