Can’t Keep

I quit

Can’t keep
Running up into the wall
Of your resistance
These brittle bones
No match for
Cruelty and uncaring

Gotta quit

Shouldn’t keep
Hitting against the rock
That is your heart
With the soft touch of
My love

Gotta quit

Won’t keep
Prying between the bricks
Sealing your sweetness
The tender meat
of my fingertips
caking up cracks that don’t
Exist

I quit

Can’t keep
Running into the wall
Of your resistance

I have
Concussed too many times
Punch drunk for love
That breaks the bones
That carry me through
Hard times and tough memories

Gotta quit.

Can’t keep
Running up into the wall
Of kinda your love.
