poem: after the fact

after the fact

regardless of all
that's been said

i am sincere
i am sincere
i am sincere

how you twisted it around
yet how beautiful you write
the words that slash my name

am i to feel shame
because I backed down
walked away
refused to argue
to play your game

that was a rare day

and because of it
you abuse your memory of me
having others believe
I am not who I am

the only warning
that need be given
is that I am human
like you
only less skilled
with the words
that I know.
