“You” – Poem

It’s like you never knew

how much I cared about you.

How much comfort and warmth

radiated through my body with every touch–

like an electric blanket on a snow day.


I wanted to tell you.


I wanted you to know the truth,

but I couldn’t be humiliated again.


So we’ll leave the tears where they fall.

You can pretend it never happened,

and I’ll pretend not to care at all.
