The Last Three Days


You left me with a text:

"We need to talk"

in the middle of a Monday.


That was enough for me.


It was over as far

as I was concerned.


I sat hours by the phone

and it never rang. 


My blood boiled

at the fact that you would

disappear like that. 


The next day I caved

and texted you my feelings

on your disappearing act.


And you responded.


You actually resurfaced

but it wasn't enough.


I needed to hear it 

from your lips.


And on day three,

we finally spoke.


You didn't seem concerned

for my feelings at all.


It was then that I 

realized what a favor

you did for me. 


I could have wasted

more time invested in you.


Thank you for ending it

when I was afraid to.
