Already Ready Already

The space inside
is smaller now
a heart shrunk day by day
armored up
with callous pride
a love that wastes away

Our confessions fail
to live up to
the namesake that they bear
facile words
within the pale
sleeves with nothing there

One day perhaps
our tongues will slip
and truth will pass between
with baited breath
we wait the lapse
actors biding till their scene
