  Your last act of contrition
  was you at my door with your sad eyes
  and blood red apology roses
  joyless I let you in
  surrounding me with sorry words
  you were long past my amazement
  .
  the last act after bitter tears
  another offhand rejection
  was the final realization
  that you’d torn me
  into pieces beyond repair
  my faith became an open wound
  .
  the last act of absolution
  after putting them into a crystal vase
  was watching each petal dry, curl, and then fall
  every day a funeral
  you gave me apology roses, love
  I gave them no water
  .
