I am sad for you.
You’ve entered a lonely space.
It seems apparent to me now,
that you are not a person of your word…
the words which left your mouth
when we used to talk were really empty…
no real meaning except
to fill the silence which
you didn’t know how to live with.
I don’t know how someone can be so cold,
to pass by someone
who shared their time with you,
let you into their life,
and you pass right by them and say nothing?
Like none of that ever existed?
The only logical explanation
is that you really never cared at all.
You just filled up the silence
with words you never meant.
But now the silence is loud…
because the person who let you in,
has said a silent Good Bye.
You have hurt them,
more than they’ll ever let you know,
but it will always show
for, unlike you, they had feelings
and cared for real.
I hope you find peace in this place
within which you’ve isolated yourself.
It’s ironic that this poem exists
for you never wanted to become
a topic or a reason
for me to write this.
It must be hard looking in the mirror every day
knowing you lied…
except I doubt you’ve spent much time
with the person who looks back at you
with those sad, lonely eyes.
You hide it well behind that beautiful smile,
but I wonder how long you’ll keep doing that?
Staying busy –
Never dealing with any of it?
I see you’re just breathing right now.
