Neglect

Negligence is all it takes
the most certain way
to break the things
you most don’t want to
and it’s not that you ignore it
because you do not know you are
in none of this is an attempt made
as Yoda said, “There is no try”
all you are is unaware
blind to the physical erosion
deaf to the weakening pulse
numb to the recoil in your hands
of what or whoever you love most
these are unread signs
not deliberately disobeyed
no flagrant violation
simple obliviousness
to the cause
but as concerns the effect
you will know it
o, how you most sorrowfully will
