Purple's Platitudes

nothing but words …


25 April 2014



you hold me too tightly, don’t allow me to breathe,

force me to say what you want, then complain when I bleed,


you compare me unfairly, no glitter, no gel,

just black and blue uses, you’ve inflicted so well.


I’m dizzy and tired, you twirl me too much,

I feel drained, used, and shrink from your touch.


I thought I was cherished, special to you,

but the way that you treat me, that cannot be true.


I’m neglected, abandoned, or worse, sometimes shared,

our relationship’s dying, I believed you cared.


I’ve listened and been there through your darkest times,

but your attention’s been turned, I’m just tossed aside.


I know you expect me to just dry up and die,

I’ve been replaced, you don’t have to lie.


Someday you’ll miss the way that it felt,

when we were together, the stories we’d tell.


I know it’s the end, but before I’m ignored,

just remember that I am mightier than the sword.
