bus out of town

I talk too much
and get beat down
with silence
a foolish pollyanna
a sucker for a kind word

from someone who can’t be bothered
with the emotional side of things
some women
are built for speed-
I was built for empathy

all fine and good at 20
with big plans
idealism anyone-
certain it would pan out
at some point

but giving up feels good
at this moment
forgetting dreams-
I can’t give you something
you won’t take

and you can’t accept what you see
as no more than a token
the love it represented
beat up and taking the bus
to warmer climates
