You delivered your secrets
Like fresh folded laundry
Placed in a black leather carryall
And handed them over to me…
Because you were a coward and
Couldn’t deal with your mistakes
So reluctantly I carried your baggage for you
For many years
Because you were my friend
I trusted you, I lied for you
I begged you to release me from
This responsibility but…
You were busy getting high with your husband
And kids
I saved your life…so you could ruin what was left of it.
You ruined your children’s lives.
Your youngest taking her own…
