Consolation Prize

These dreams
I’ve held so close.
Those moments
I felt my heart would swell to bursting.
The very thought
That someday, somehow you might choose me.
It blindly sufficed.
It was enough to sustain me for a time.

The eyes
That glistened while we laughed.
The only touch
That halted my very breath.
The countless times
I believed that I was the only girl.
Your only girl
And that you needed me as I need you.

The very notion
Now seems so absurd.
The foolish desires
Born of a foolish girl.
The repeated burial
Of my temporal misgivings.
I fell deeper into the fire
And became your willing captive.

The truth eventually emerges
And has revealed itself to me.
The time has come for goodbye
And I’m left gripping memories.
The sickening words will echo
The impenetrable truth.
Your final words to me;
“I am so sorry”.
