Solace

You’ll be hurting me tonight
as I cut you from my world
no longer My Girl Friday
because we both deserve better
despite the potential for abuse
that lives in you
that I won’t let live in me
though we could have been friends
if there were something to be friends with
I’d still like to believe there was
at one point
before you tried to tattoo that purple
over the grey within you
I tried
and that must be my solace.

Why
should past conquests be
what keep us cloaked
from the chill of present insecurity
on low days
when we cannot accept
the smiles of lovers
as real?

The memories
can only ever bring
a whisper of comfort
in the power they give us to change
the past
for a shallow boost
that is granted much better
by chocolate.

Where Am I?
