I Meant It - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

To you it was funny
When they were using my money,
And now you're so far in debt...
You may as well stay there!
It wouldn't be cost effective to bail you out!

'Feast or famine? '

You talking to me?
You sat on pews to pray.
Drove many a day past me
Without a nod or a sign that we had met.
That you are going through a 'phase'
Is something I regret...
Like the time you left me stranded.
Knowning I was damn near on my hands and knees!

I'll take the feast...
You can have the famine!
And the empty space you say I left in your heart!
You left me.
I just agreed not to give a damn.
And I meant it!
