Collateral Damage

I was blown up

Amidst the sparks

You blew me up

And I landed not in the stars

*

But in the coals

Of what remained

*

And as you headed back

To the hallway

I was sucked out

Gutted clean and empty

*

You needed space

And I provided

An ignominious disgrace

You left me divided

*
