BEGINNING OF END

Let me write about her recent behavior
In an attempt to put mine on her lips
She wipes my mouth with resentment
Sometimes landing fingerprints of anger
on my cheeks

When I try entering her doors
She barks at me like a hungry dog
Freezing me with cold air
Outside the gate of confusion
Exhaling me as if I’m a mist
Ruined on the city road

I’m only a man
Weeping silently
But no one sees my tears,
my pain
As I’m crying in rain
