Love sadness pain unrequited anger despair

Will Not Reciprocate

Your absense, disregarded

It brings contentedness

Knowing you'll be here

The faintest of lies could be ameliorating

Only to abstain thereafter

Defraud has already been done

Must I cease the speculation

I've heard your voice

Reiterated in my own thoughts

So vivid, yet disheartening

A lost opportunity

To perceive the initial tone

That was once there

 

Shame is felt

For you to bare this obscure history

Our presence is made

Indifference

Who are you? Who am I? What are we?

 

You've made your statement

Consigned to oblivion

Walk away

With the pride you've amassed

To acquire it for yourself

 

Shame is felt

For you to bare this obscure history

Eye to eye

Indifference

Who are you? Who am I? What are we?

 

You attempt to waive the problems away

Afflicting you

Though it does not thwart you

It's now set and done

It mitigates your negativity

Knowing you aren't the one enduring

Knowing you've left

With harvested pride

 

You've repleted yourself with competency

Your remorseless eyes glare

At the firsthand demise set before you

You've had me spellbound

I break away from your fettering chains

I will not reciprocate

 

Shame is felt

For you to bare this obscure history

Eye to eye

Indifference

 

I recall what was once there

Knowing what it was

My words stay sincere to you

I will not reciprocate

 

Author's Notes/Comments: 

Not succumbing to old feeling for an individual. Burrowing those feelings to the ground, almost creating indifference between the two.
