Call it what you want to,
It all becomes so easily unmanaged.
The strength and courage is slain
validating the damage that cannot be undone,
pummeled like an orchid in a torrent rain
or bent out of shape, a vinyl record left in the sun.
You can certainly attempt to forgive
but in no way, will or can you forget,
all in all for as long as you may live
forever twisted like a radio-eaten cassette.
