Crash Test Dummies - Poem by Amberlee Carter
something so simple,
if it really were,
we'd not be mentioning it now.
I think in the time it takes you
to voice reason,
I will have quit loving you.
I cannot help but feel somewhat guilty,
this final good-bye was
supposed to mean something.
and I tried,
I denied you nothing,
opened myself for your pleasure,
and yet the burden now falls on your shoulders,
because you say I'm leaving,
and I know,
I've already been gone.
there's so many betrayals-
we make room for pity-sake,
we like to suffer,
we like to anger.
and yet it is misfortunate that
now you realize you've loved me
for all this time,
and I think of
how ready I am to walk away-
then I wonder if in the time it takes me to
leave behind the spare key,
if you'll notice that I've never stayed.
