You think we need to fix our relationship
but it’s not broken,
it just never existed
and you of all people
should know you can’t create something
out of nothing.

You sound like a scratched record,
repeating yourself even though
I’ve become deaf to your criticisms.

I’m weary from hearing
of your bitterness
and the shame that I’ve caused you.

I’m sorry I’m not perfect.
