Ball of Confusion

Ball of Confusion

staring back in my rear view
your smiling scowl
filled with warmth and retribution

one part acceptance
one part jaded
dagger in the heart fixed
with jagged edges rammed
deep for good measure

I seek solace in kisses
no longer conforming
to my lips
in eyes that once created
calm, now mimic fire starters

I want to hold you still
complete you by building
bridges over the infestation
I helped release

then I zoom in focus
with innocence undefined
your mistakes mingle with mine
dancing a tango I’ve never mastered
then I see it

the relief I seek
lives within me
