Him

You gave me the jar
And gave me the umbrella
But do you
Forget 
What I gave you?

While I smashed your jar
And let the umbrella fly away
You handled
The most toxic
Gift
Of all.

You had my secrets
All bundled up
In trust 
And what I think
Is love.

You had the bomb 
And you couldn't
Defuse it.

I couldn't
Find a place 
For your jar
To stay
Intact
And whole.

There was
No space
In my tiny home
For an
Umbrella rack.

I handed you
A bomb
That you
Couldn't handle
Just like you 
Handed me gifts
That I just
Couldn't place.

All of this fuss
Over my death
Or have you already
Forgotten
Why we're doing this?
