Not sure when
the trying went
When we gave up
on caring
Listening, watching

Not sure when
the drinking started
Where it came from
this resentment
Anger, the tears

Not sure when
these years piled on
Like laundry in
the hamper
Left, forgotten
passed without

Not sure where
the love went
There was so much
so many
Promises, pledges
So many verses quoth
of the undying

Not sure where
we go from here
This ledge where
we face off
Both right about
all of it

Not sure how
to apologize
To accept blame
when you’re
At fault

Not sure how
to leave you

Not sure how
to love you

I’m not sure of
