Conforming to Your Wishes


Cliff Lai

Response to Ashley

The Hopeless Romantic has left the building
The hopes have lost their minds
Empty shells of substance
Grow deranged with every dye.
Marking your wishes,
Yielding to reversed expectations
I walk away unscathed
But for that which you don't see.
Conjoining, re-emerging, the composition
Morphs; parts of you, parts of me,
Parts us endlessly.
