some years later

why did you leave? she asks

I thought we had something going

were good together y’know?

you just upped & left

wouldn’t answer my calls

refused to speak to my friends

& I hear a note in there

of anger maybe bitterness

& I’m torn

between walking away now

or letting her know

decide to let my own go

do you not remember?

we were out with friends

you’d gone out to smoke

& I wandered out

found you kissing your ex

his hand between your legs

full grope

yeah I walked away

decided you were not the person

I thought you to be

& oh was all she said

I didn’t know you knew about that

like if I didn’t

everything would be ok

so you guessed what happened next

I got up & walked away
