Tomorrow, You Monster

Your promise of joy is not enough for me.
It’s a shallow mirage,
a false front to convince yourself,
and all of your wasted love,
when we gather together,
trading attempts at acknowledgement and understanding,
offering gifts of gratefulness and material sacrifice,
a promise of decency,
a mockery of our true lives,
our true hearts,
our sleeping will.
