You couldn’t hide
The uncomfortable truth
As he tried to read
Those not-telling eyes.
I watched as he
Swallow dived to wrong conclusion
Upon wrong conclusion.
You mimed words
Which I lipread,
Your lips red,
Your eyes glassed,
Tear stained.
You left me –
Walking slowly
Backwards towards
A past lost.
The future present carrying
Weighted decisions,
Falling heavy like
Rusted iron leaves
Outside my window.
