Ruin

What flourished underneath of us
Like wounds we never tended
Nor intended
Actions that we both defended
Never mended
Grew infected and distended
Gangrenous, and leaking pus

And still, the blade we pushed aside
Rejecting amputation
And cessation
Opting sadly for stagnation
And frustration
Finding no alleviation
But we never really tried

We merely watched the other bleed
And simply both pretended
That it ended
Any thoughts to be amended
As we blended
Into battles unintended
Though we knew where it would lead

Into a land of lacking care
And suffering, damnation,
Irritation
Every nerve seeking sedation
From fixation
Of our honesty’s negation
Asking, “How did we get there?”
