Brother No More

Mine

you were my brother.
once, my lover.
then? those vows?
to another…
now no other

you sealed it
we’re siblings
don’t confound it.

then you?
you tell me
you need
“understanding”
she’s confounding
and
you’re withstanding

and me?
i’m supposed to
just give you
not withstanding
your inability
to give to me
so you can 
feel better
about the letter
of your contract

and you… 
who claim to love me
just torture
and confuse me

see, you?
you’re just the same as
all the others
who ever come as
friend
or brother
have been revealed
the same scum
as
all 
the 
rest

my brother
from another
get you gone
i ain’t ya sistah…
you’re the same scum
as the others
get away
and
let me
rest
