Wrote this months and months back, only just manned up enough to post it. C&C as welcome as ever.

China

It seems like such a long time ago
That I wavered on the edge of bravery
When silence sealed my lips tight shut
And admission was my slavery

Questions skirted and deftly flicked
A shrug of shoulders, nod of head
Avoidance was the game I played
Torn apart, thread by thread

I pictured you, white against white
Eyes half moons, each sickly bruise
A stamp of something lost
Yet not enough to make the news

I still wonder if you ever noticed
The absence from your bedside
I still wonder if you understood
And if you knew I tried

Regret is a gash within me
That pulses, never wants to leave
And my cowardice and my fear
They will never let my grieve

If I could go back, only just once
I would kiss your paper skin
And tell you about my day
Every single, silly little thing

It seems like such a long time ago
That I clenched my teeth and shut my eyes
And didnít do that one haunting thing
That now stops me saying my goodbye.
