Zandi Wardle (South Africa)
You left my heart pouring with sadness when you said:
You liked her…
All this time I thought you were feeling me but instead
I was lying to myself; I didn’t see the signs clearly,
Guess I was caught up in this idea of you and I
I looked at you daily,
Sometimes lustfully, when you roamed around me and led me on.
See … The minute you spoke about her
I felt a pain in my chest as I held back my tears.
I have to thank you,
Though you wasted my time, My feelings for you never really made it! ! !
You built a bridge between us so I could only get that far…
So far I thought I was so close yet I wasn’t …
I’m hurt, I’ll admit
But I am glad I’m strong enough to congratulate you two.
