27. Try To Remind

I could try to remind you,
Of who you once were,
What it once meant,
What you had learnt,
But apparently truth
Soon rears it’s foul face,
Fragments now laced,
In a contortion of distaste.

 This corruptive force of your youth
Of the deceit that you have enrolled
Your partiallity to immorality
Cannot be blamed because you were betrothed.

 Your sea is now sinking,
Your friends are down low,
Brittle lungs now drinking,
Forbidden to swallow,
Crippled eyes now blinking,
To not know what they know,
Rest assured, I’m assuring,
Your heart will drown in the shallows.

 I could try to remind you,
Of who you once were,
What it once meant,
What you had learnt…

 But my dear friend, I won't whisper a sound,

I think you were lost long before you were found.

The End
