Emotions Rag

I hold onto my emotions
lest they disappear into the
overwhelming silence,
lest they shatter on the
jagged shoreline,
crushed by waves of
sheer indifference.

I encircle my emotions
within my own embrae,
coldness is everywhere.

I no longer insist on acceptance,
or futile gestures
bearing more shadow than meaning.

I’ve planned the ceremonial drowning of
my own meager expectations.

I anticipate no visitors at the
bedside of my dying for
i will soon be forgotten
as it should be.
