Toxic

I drink the backwash
of hollowed out promises

Is it me, invites indifference
expectations so low, self
gowned in layered shame?

How do I learn otherwise
break this toxic pattern
if not in pursuit of love?

Permission to write, paint, and imagine are the gifts I gave myself when chronic illness hit - a fair exchange: being for doing. Relevance is an attitude. Humour essential.
