frayed edges

i know all about you
i’ve known for years
who you really are
what you really mean
when you talk about
“communication”
and i deal with it…..
oh but every once in a while
i start thinking you could be different
maybe i’m more to you
than just “human capital”
maybe i’m your friend
i let myself believe
and am instantly sorry
as your martyr rears its
fiery red head yet again….
you will never change
you can’t be counted on
and i know it
i’m caught
in the middle of your drama
the patchwork pieces of me
threatening to unravel
to come apart completely…
but for now it’s just
edges fraying in the wind
i can catch myself
if i’ll let those illusions go
and remind myself again
of who you really are….
