Everything I did with you

I do alone


Everything you did with me

You do with him


What do you see in him

That I could not see

In myself?


The scent of anger and remorse

Lingers through memories

I thought sweet


I sent out and sought for love

Your idea of it

Tipped the scale; holding you

In the highest regard


Your touch

Brought a subtle selfishness

To a forgiving feeling

Cemented in time


One cannot recover

From something so,



For you,

Time will heal

What you failed to feel.
