Tattered

I lay here tattered
Scattered
Shattered
And wait. Always waiting
In this broken darkness
For a saviour, a superhero
For you-
I gave up everything
Anything
Nothing
To be the rock
You anchored to, the
Shoulder you cried on
The place you slept-
I played the fool
The rube
Played it cool
I thought you knew
But you didn’t. The soul
I gave, you took as
A loan, or a gift
Or something found on
The sidewalk-
It’s okay.
I forgive you.
Again.
