            You nurtured
            gave pleasure.

            Changed,
            harbored
            a secret weapon.

            Disarmed in time,
            I look at you now,
            telltale scar
            frowns.

            I pat you down,
            not gently,
            lump rising only
            in my throat,
            this time.
