indifference

all the beauty and pain around me
meant something-
once upon a time.

the sun, the moon the wet soil on my feet
the lovely scent of spring
and winter and the dark
the way you hold me tight.

chopped hair, dark eyes, and long sleepless nights
the stooping low the bending back
the head turned down,
the will turned down,
the breaking splinters of my bone.

once upon a time
before the words you threw at me
ate away at my soul
and i stopped caring.
