Cloak and Dagger


You came back to me,
second chances are one thing,
but expecting me to bend completely to your expectations was a distorted fantasy.
I couldn’t give a pound of flesh for a vulnerability, so you did what you did originally –

Left me.


You didn’t leave with courage,
you left a coward,
after peace was a ruse, and love was a mask,
you left as most do,
the one that has the last goodbye,
but not through words,
through cloak and dagger,

“I just loved you, now you don’t matter”.

I do.

    At the end of the day, you are all that ever mattered. I love how you wrote this in two movements.
