All That’s Left (tw?)

All that’s left unsaid
Is sarcasm and sacrilege
In the interest of decorum
And protecting their feelings
Contempt might as well
Have already escaped
Tight, angry lips scowling
Why did the fight to keep
What couldn’t be kept
Go on so long?
All that’s left undone
Is the final departure
Staring at a closed door…
All the doors are closed
A metaphor for everything
Locked and unobtainable
Why does disappointment
Greet every effort
To dream and achieve
Sitting in the darkness
Another apt metaphor
For everything
All that’s left are the
Shattered shards of hope.
