The Curse

by

I might think I can’t take it any more, that I can’t go on any more, but one way or another I get past that.  ~  Haruki Murakami.:

You came at the time when
I thought I was ready to give my heart
to anyone who was willing
to claim it.

I thought you claimed it —
Maybe you did for a moment
but you gave it back
extremely bruised and broken.

I came at the time when
you thought you were prepared
to dance around the flames
of love and hatred.

I wrote down your name
Along with your untethered lies
Bitterness lingered on my lips
as I cursed these words painstakingly

You will never be truly ready.
