fratri(c)ide

you were given
every opportunity
to apologize for
your repugnant actions
yet you insisted
on making excuses
passing the blame
you inherited alone

so as your world
crumbles around you
and you seek someone
to put the fault upon
find a mirror
and stare deeply
into the face that
caused all the misery

you leave a trail
of broken friendships
to stain the carpet
as you decry the fibers
for attracting the filth
so inward gazing in
false adorations
the reality is lost
in your deflections

now when we pass
one another it is as
strangers instead of
the brotherly bond
we once shared
as you poison another
relationship through
your own negligence
at accepting the results
of your own selfish need
