protest of heart

how long will i dismally write

about love far off

who won’t exceed

or acknowledge me

his loss absorbs

every cell of which i breathe

and allows indifference

creates a protest of heart

that drowns ability to reach

marrying me to memory

that starts to feel more like some dream

that i’ve created but never really seen
