I can’t do this again.

It hurt the last time,
    and the time before that.

You say it will be different,
but we’ve known each other

too long;
  
     we’re locked in our recurring
        roles of anger and grief.

I can’t do this
                    again.

trying to rekindle a relationship after already mourning each other's loss is like a doctor who keeps using a defibrillator on a patient with no heart...one can only hope sometimes though..

Deft, economical, exacting.

Unidentified pronouns create a very a very concrete form of abstraction. It's strength lies in the fusion of the general and the particular.

It infuses what are in fact generalisations, with very particular force. Good news for poets!

Without that extra force, a line like
"We're locked in our recurring roles would be impossible"

There is a remarkable collection of "diagnostic" writings (my word not his) by the psychotherapist RD Laing. It's called Knots.

My parents lived their own instatiation of this knot. They married and divorced each other twice. My mother went on to repeat the same pattern with my step father. After his death even she seemed to be exhausted.

Thank you, Alec. I think this pattern is true of other relationships, too. Parents and children can fall into destructive patterns that for some reason can never be broken short of walking away.

I'm sorry your parents (and by extension you) had such a painful time of it. I'll look for Knots. Thanks. :hug:
