Blight

Image result for light and dark figures art

we’re wrong but we’re right
another cold unending fight
new version of that same old song
unchanged notes in our story
playing all along

never harmed and no foul
you should see this by now
yet principles and sleeping dogs wake
consciously committing yet
another mistake

how much more will you take?
sweat beading on my brow…
contemptible and headstrong…
your beau but your blight…
