The Guy Who Told Me - Poem by Elena V. Moonray

The guy
who told me
he did not
want
to know me
any
more,
and did not
want
my
fare
well
gift
and did not
want
to hear
about
me
no
more
or ever
talk,
as I’ve
commit
ted
a crime
and
no longer
exist
on this
planet...

He thought
he would
save
himself
from his
fears
by erasing
me
from his
world.

I know
I should not
have
let him
steel
my peace,
and should
just have
let his
words
pass
through
me
like winds...
and be
glad
that someone
who has no
love
for me
is gone
forever...

But it was
not
that easy
and
I could not
do it...

After you
open
a secret door
in your
heart
it becomes
abosolutely
vulnerable.
And everything,
good and
bad
comes straight
into it.
That’s why tears
still
cover my eyes
when
I think of what
happened
between you and me
this
past
summer...
