Remember Me

by Nick Gisburne

Remember me, remember what I am
Dysfunctional, incompetent and weak
My life, a worthless, disappointing sham
A tragedy of silence, blind and bleak
Remember me, with feelings of disdain
Duplicitous, contemptible and lost
My face, a broken mirror in the rain
A flower, overwhelmed by winter’s frost
Remember me, the promises I made
Impossible, preposterous and fake
My heart, a stolen vessel, filled with shade
A chalice for the venom of a snake
    Remember, all I say and all I do
    Remember, I will not remember you
