If You Don'T Love Me Anymore - Poem by RIC BASTASA

if you do not love me anymore
do not write me a poem
like a code
that i have to crack
like i am a spy
in your movie
like i am an unknown
of your assassin

shoot me right
with my eyes wide open
no need
to tell me to
walk a little farther
and hit me at
my back with your

the way you
talk like i am already
a stranger
in your house

the way you
treat me like
i were a child
with all my

the way you
cover your language
like i am
a fool who cannot
what direct
frank language is all about

if you don't really love me anymore
all you have to do
is tell me

and i will tell you too,
never had i ever loved you

never, never, never

just tell me,
because i can always tell you,

i also know
what you can do, i also know what to say
when you finally tell me
