I Can Appreciate An Act Of Love/Hate Confusion - Poem by Manny Negron

.i didn’t see it coming.
.it took me by surprise.
.i wonder what i made of it.
.i tried so hard not to cry.

.having earned every cheek-warming tear.
.i allowed myself to indulge in sorrow.
.a bittersweet reminder.
.that i welcome tears of tomorrow.

.what can i say, you utterly broke my heart.
.you never meant to hurt me, but you knew it from the start.

.regardless of how out of character,
.i’d hate to leave you in the dark.
.if my smile rises with the sun,
.will you show me what has become?

.so, i’ll leave you with what’s due.
.treat your ears to something new:
.“thanks for breaking my heart”.
