Forgive

Blood

I can smell it

on your sheets.

I can see it in your eyes,

I hear it in your voice.

I know that I've lost you

I can tell

cause it's written on your arms, and in your heart

It's in the pill bottle

where your pills used to be

he said

"take one a day"

you were the first

marking me with tattoos

and lines of love and delusion.

I forgive you, but I haven't forgiven myself

yet.

This poem is about: 
Me
My family
