Shame on You

When did you put our relationship on cruise control?
When was behavior like this ever appropriate?
I was sure that we were on the same page.
I felt safe when we were together.
But now I feel like that was the exception.
Like I’m living in some kafkaesque nightmare
Where you’re treating me like an adversary.
And what hurts is that you’re not even contrite.
What a waste.
Shame on you.


Written for the following daily prompts: Word of the Day Challenge (cruise), My Vivid Blog (appropriate), The Daily Spur (safe), Fandango’s One-Word Challenge (exception/kafkaesque), Ragtag Daily Prompt (adversary), and Your Daily Word Prompt (contrite).

    You proved me wrong; a poem could be written with kafkaesque in it! Good job!
