The Camel's Back
Eyes that could never drink enough sink
to the floor and walls wandering in thirst.
Longing for second thoughts -- each first
one is swallowed in far too much to think.
When it comes to forgiveness - it is there.
That is not even the issue. The sunkissed
months will never be so easily dismissed,
nor problems alter the way they still care.
But widening occurs when unparallel rails
begin to consider the spreading distance
favorable. So has it been in this instance.
Two hearts beating upon mutual betrayals.
Oh, two minds silently screeching until raw,
the sparks flying through black in the night.
Indeed, seldom was seen so quiet a fight
and lost chances, last looks -- Last straw.
