“Tending To My Disappointment”
Tending to my disappointment,
tends to build resentment.
Like true lies,
far, far, back.
out the back,
of a used hatchback.
My conscience becomes a stowaway,
accountability thrown away.
Forever, indebted to wrongly attributed superlatives.
Do not forgive a spurious gesture.
always sells you,
gilded gifts and promised pleasure,
but, leaves you concrete pains.
The flames of fear,
until there is nothing left but dismally disappointing ashes.

"Look at God within yourself, how 'God is Light.' For his Nature is a glorious, many-splendored Light. He manifests the Light of his Nature to those who love Him in all the worlds…" (John of Dalyatha, Syriac Mystic)
