but i already do...
i still loved you then,
and love you now too
enough to know i should let you go
but i've one last request as i do
please think fondly sometimes of your lonely calypso
and know she wants happiness for you
my psyche desired a pursuit from you
i realized that's something you won't ever do
(at least not in the way that I want you to)
twice offered, twice bitten, i knew it was over
before it had ever begun, we were through:
something you told me in myriad ways
something you already knew
i know there is love because i'm not completely desolated; i am not inconsolable. there is an empty dull ache and a heavy sadness but i am also happy for you. she is wonderful and beautiful and sweet and kind and full of love. she can only be good for you. as i've said before,
you + me = negative empathic feedback loop.
