it was selfish of you,
you know?
you knew i would answer,
that i would hang on every word.
you could have reached out to anyone else
but no,
you just couldn’t help yourself,
could you?
the truth
is that you devastated me.
i discovered the pain
that comes
after you can no longer cry,
the bitter taste
of some forgotten fruit.
i am no stranger to that darkness.
did it hurt you,
did you want me to be happy?
did you want me to accept
that after everything
i was merely a colleague?
you are not that naïve
and unfortunately,
neither am i.
