Narcissus to Echo




You always cry

when you’re about to smile


But I don’t blame you darling


Who could know the weight

those shoulders of yours



Spurned on by distractions


Chattering to goddesses

to cover an affair


Your tongue

sported imitations

because of your actions


Could only

repeat singular talks

your mouth should have just been sewn shut


You spewed that one word

with so much passion

that maybe even I

could have fell in love with you


If only you smiled

before you wept
