The Bigger Picture - Poem by Casey Renee Kiser

I remember...

the insignificance of your breath
crushing me.
You sloppy touch
making a complete mess of me.
Your disco ball ego
blinding me.
Your commitment to the self-help section
never helping you at all.
Your words being the only criminals
I could never trust.

You never seemed to notice
how rarely I blinked.
But I didn't mind so much,
with the dirt upon me, so heavy.
I couldn't possibly waste my energy
on pushing YOU away...
In case I ever felt my heart beat again,
I had to be rested up and full of rage
to escape the bigger picture.

You were the great provider...
