Fault Lines

Version One:

Fault Lines I

You know you did wrong,
not ‘just one mistake,’
but one that went on.
You gorged on that cake.

I should have known better,
you’d done it before,
again and again
with the very same …

I don’t do self pity,
it’s not for me.
I put it to you, categorically:
this is all your fault.

  2. I love this! A deeply personal piece, but one with which many of us can relate to. I do prefer version one – It feels a little more hard hitting :)
