Mockingbird

I dare you to speak and share
why we are no longer together.
Secrets kept in silence
and I remember landscapes
of screaming, concealed
as love.
Without you,
I exist as a spirit
singing in circles
while mocking your calls
“Oh, love me.”
You wanted sympathy
and like a small bird
beats its wings to live,
you kiss her
to heal yourself.
