my house looks darker when you leave.
in the morning, i’m going to be gone and
i’m afraid i didn’t capture enough sentiment
in my goodbye.
you thought i didn’t notice the
way your shoulders sank, your fingers already
curled around a cigarette as you left.
to clarify: i’m not in love with you,
and i’m very sorry for that.
to tell the truth: i don’t know if
this is the right decision and
i wish you’d asked me to stay.
i promised i’d call but
i don’t think i will.
