Did you forget all of me was inside you? I only used your holes for my spare parts At first-until each ounce I extracted Now, looking in the mirror asking-who? I think I lost myself inside of you I can't retrieve now that you've retracted You've broken me with your breach of contract I used to see color, now only blue. Love or life, I wonder which is the greater loss? Is ownership a prerequisite of grief? If so, my pain I am not entitled. Although relieved I am of albatross I'm now racked with curs'd thoughts of that thief Alone, sans my resource for survival.
written in the perspective of Blanche Dubois, "A Streetcar Named Desire"
