Your Suffering

I have suffered with you
When the suffering was not mine
Designed to build you
And at the same time
Killing me
Loneliness the thing
Given for free
As you struggled
You only offered me
Your suffering
Placing it in my hand
Instead of a ring
Draping it across my shoulders
No fox no sable no mink
Just a weighty thing
And now
Your suffering has become
An unholy crime
Against me
Binding that engulfs my
Every move and mood and side
Your suffering
The only thing
now mine
