When Everything I Do Is Wrong

I could be naked

So far from you

So vulnerable

The ground so cold

Icy pebbles beneath my spine

The last time

Your eyes so accusing

I never meant harm

I loved you

I didn’t know what it meant

I don’t know what I mean

I open my arms

You turn away

Your eyes filled with contempt

I ache knowing I can’t change this

What I did was wrong

Forgiveness is not in you.

Even though on second thought

it was because of you

That I did everything wrong.
