Stages

You cried

You cried for maybe

20 minutes?

15?

 

Then you pleaded

You tried to at least

But why?

What's the point?

 

Then you screamed

Screamed at the world

Screamed at me

Because we hurt you

 

Then you got angry

Angry at me for leaving

Angry at yourself for believing

Because you couldn't understand

 

Then you made threats

Threats to hurt yourself

Threats to "expose" me

But that didn't work either

 

Then you got livid

You said you hated me

You repeatedly told me to kill myself

And you meant it

 

Then you apologized

Tried to take it all back

But the things you said

Can never be forgiven

 

Then you cried again

Less this time

5 minutes?

Or 4?

 

And your cycle repeats

An endless loop

But it will never work

No matter how much you say you love me

This poem is about: 
Me
