I Weep


A deadline forgotten.
Immovable, with penalties;
unmoved by tears.

Documents strewn.
Irreplaceable, mandatory;
misplaced by neglect.

Self-confidence lost.
Unreasonably in doubt;
irresolute in judgment.

A resentful litany.
Regrettably vituperative;
forget not nor forgive.

All intent questioned.
Impaired, ever suspicious;
despairing of humanity.

Only death is rest.
Illusory, a deception;
inexorably pursued.

I saw but could not touch.
I helped but could not soothe.
I loved but could not save.
I weep.
