The Last Thousand Conversations #Poetry #Journey

I’ve held out hope
to have that conversation
but another part
insists we’ve already had it
a thousand times before
It starts out civil
explaining our feelings
But then it turns
to the Blame-and-Shame game
every struggle we had was my fault
you refuse to take any
personal responsibility
a complete lack of self-awareness
The memories are forever
seared into my heart

Read yesterday’s poem, “Unfinished Conversations,” a predecessor to this poem.
