Comment on this Work

I only see in hindsight

It’s not your fault
That I didn’t see
The wounds you
So easily inflicted
That I didn’t let go
Until it was too late

That I watched you
Strip back layers of
My skin to see
The blood well up
And overflow
As you smiled

That I let you
Crawl into the hollow
Inside my bones
And the place behind
My eyes that you
So casually violated

Excuse me now
If I walk by unseeing
Turning away
From your dark eyes
Your loving, your touch
Your fabulousness

For I only see
In hindsight
And I’ve finally
Come to realise
There’s no going back
From what I’ve now seen
