Commitment

the things we do
due to commitment;
for duty instead of love.

abstract notions splattered
against the paleness.
discarded sentiments dripping
along the cracks.

ink spills
onto the floor;
footprints stain
the hardwood surface.

reflections along
the colorless sky;
memories burned away
by the early sunrise.

apologies swaddled in
forgiveness;
time teaches the
lessons eternal.
