Alone, now

i’m not supposed to be 
and you are not supposed to
it’s made clear you’ve left long ago 
but as you can 
we are never quite on the same 

i bleed alone, now, and carry
i’ve sheltered me better, to tether 
my health; with the alter
and a taste of your truths, I can 
wash away the stain
you’ve become
~ A. L. Stippich
