Love, Life & Loss

Oh look, another untitled poem

I was just a stupid kid

When we first met

Didn’t know the weight

Of all the things I said

Could never have imagined

The road that lay ahead

I’m sorry I deceived you

But I deceived me, too

 

At the time I thought

My love was real

I’ve never tried to lie about

The way I feel

Instead you’re the one who kept

The truth concealed

Perhaps if you’d confessed

I may not upped and left

 

The fucks I had to give

Had long expired

Sorry I could never be

What you required

But in the end I guess

I’d grown too tired

To stick around and listen

To any more of your deception
