Illustration By Poet Rummager
Gaslight – (verb) : is a form of psychological abuse in which the victim is manipulated to doubt their own memory, perception, and sanity. (Wikipedia)
I told you I was sorry,
I promised to be better,
but the words dissolved like the sugar dust on a hot funnel cake,
and I meant them for as long.
You all think I’m a monster, a bastard, a fiend…
and I can’t argue.
My heart seems quite fine without beating,
and I can carry the leadweight sitting lumpishly in my chest,
like a huge and stupid bird that won’t learn to fly,
You are waiting for me to buckle I know,
waiting for a tear to well and my throat to crack,
and an abject shaky apology to spill out
that you can replay…
