I warned you of its fragile state
Reminded you time and again
of its unparalleled value
I placed it delicately on your hands
But you allowed it to decay
Eventually it started to disintegrate
between your neglecting fingers
Mindlessly letting it fall to meet
the forgotten soil beneath your feet
And you polished your hands
against your denim-clad legs,
ridding yourself of the dirty fragments
You aggressively washed away your sins
yet the stains remain on your ripped jeans
The glaring evidence of your cruelty,
of the betrayal you have done to me
