With My Apologies

Your grief
Is a dead horse
A tired inside joke 
Your best,whitest bone china 
Your favourite parlor trick
A standby for your leaden heart

Your grief
Shimmers sometimes
Like frost in winter
And condensed,icy breath on windows
On which you etch out
Confessions,accusations
Your directory of hurt
The detritus of your desire
And your dictionary of words
That have lost their meaning
Where will you find them now?

Your grief
Is like a ripple
Made by a skipping stone
On placid,silent water
I sit
And wait for it to touch
My outstretched fingers
But like so many others 
Sitting on the banks ( does this comfort you?)
I sit too far away.

What would you say
If i told you that
Your grief
And my apathy
Are kindred spirits ?
