Again and Again

A Poem

Destroying all I touch
like Midas, but in place
of golden splendor
it falls to ash — decimated.
Watch our dreams slip
through my fingers.

Hands that were meant to
have and to hold now are nothing
but a memory, a phantom
sensation running down my spine.
Closing my eyes, summoning you.

Wading into the
pool of regret, words left
unsaid are shackles weighing
me down, save yourself —
let me go under.

Give me a million
more chances, though I’d
never mean to hurt you
I would find a way to
destroy this all
again and again.
