Not The Last Swan Song - Poem by Lindsay King

Life will never be as easy
As it should be
You and I will never be fully
I gave myself to you
But it was never enough
And this time I won’t
Say that these are the last
Words I’ll pen for you
Because we both know that
It’s a lie

Sometimes it seems like
You may be referring to me
When you talk about a lost love
You had
Creeping into my mind
Late at night
This won’t suffice—
These “what if’s”
They don’t mean a thing
When I’m referring to someone who
Openly said he didn’t care
You never did,
You never will

At best I can be an
After thought
So I’m left to wonder
Why you creep into my mind
So late at night
When the love is gone
You’ve left some effect on me
Making this disconnection hard
I’m not going to lie
And say that these are
The last words
I’m going to write you
Because the honesty has
To start somewhere
Right now
