Unrequited Misfortune


I dug you two deep rivers

With the strength of my two hands

Tore through the earth with my fingers

Gathering particles under my nails

 

I stood over my creation

And then you looked at it in disgust

I guess nothing is ever good enough

Soon you see my anguish and my hurt

 

I dug you two deep rivers

Which I begin to fill with my tears

Trickling down from those brown eyes you claimed to love

And still you do not care

 

For in life no matter what

You can always be you

Be happy with your accomplishments

Because you can’t expect others to

 

I dug you two deep rivers

But I should have dug them for myself

For now my world is flooding

Because of the calamity you left
