all go

it is a terrible thing to do

when you’ve set up a life

with another

to want to tear all of that

apart

& say

I’m sorry this is no longer working for me

& I didn’t talk about the betrayals

the lies told

just & only just

this is no longer working for me

I have to let you go

& that’s it

to begin tearing it all down

break the love you had all flat

asunder

& later

I heard the stories begin

what an awful person I’d been

well quite

there is always a fee for the breakee

but no

these were fables of cruelty violence

insanity

& the crowd you once knew

are gone

you let them all go

not that they notice

they think it was them

let you go

for if they can believe these things

about you

your absence is not noticed

then your presence is no longer

required

& that

in itself creates an alone time

but better

you let them all go

if they can think these things are true

you were never real friends

anyway

but hey

there was time you believed her too

One thought on “all go
