You’ve said it already, that you don’t love me
And shown it thoughtfully in oh so many ways
Through the bruising violence that others can’t see.
The suffocating silence of seconds that last for days.
That smothers the first breath of words that say
Please bridge this split chasm between you and me
Only resolved when my thoughts dissolve your way
While you forget my past heart felt deeds
And my final question before I pass you by
Why if you hated me did you never say goodbye
if it was to another you promised to cleave
Then why in my failure did you never leave?
At love’s end why would I ask for reconciliation.
Why I’d spend forever basking in your humiliation.
