You Let Me Down

I was wrong to expect.
I know you’re a sensitive filament.
I was a sensitive filament and,
blown-out, I could have used your light.
You let me down.

Death came up like a bubble in the night
and it popped in my face.
What a mess. No picnic!
Do you want me to tell you how I cleaned it all up?
Well, I can’t! You missed it!
You let me down.

Did you fear a drowning man?
Did you fear that iron grip?
You know, all you have to do to free yourself
is dive deeper.

Christ, you’re older than me:
it’s coming!
When you going to look at it?
Life is one big solid mass of connections
and you let me down.
