the others

you pour your heart out 

and you pour it back 

and pour again 

and you pour it back 

without wanting to be 

you are consumed by the ones you’ve loved 

losing part of yourself each time 

what do I have left to compete with 

when my heart is only half full 

still, I beg you to take in every drop 

while ultimately I’m just part of the mix 

I am lost to you 

polluted for attention of the others 

cheapened for your collection 

and consummation
