You’re Not Innocent

Don’t blame me.
I heard you
call my name.
I’m only here
to collect affection.

Don’t threaten me.
Besides, what’s calling
the police going
to do, silly?

Don’t ignore me.
I heard you
call my name.
You wanted me
more than I
ever wanted you.

You’re the reason
I left home,
my home, our
home that’s dying
with a silence
of buried secrets.

Don’t play me.
Why’d you call?
Ready to apologize?
You want honesty?
Absent your essence
I can’t sleep
without your presence.

Don’t play house
Home isn’t home,
not without you.

I stupidly cheated.
I am sorry.
Louder, you say?
I am sorry!

Don’t you forget
you helped me
bury her body?
I’m sure an
anonymous tip might
spark their curiosity.
Not that I’d
call them, though.
