I came up with the idea for this while I was reading a book.
Don’t pretend I cannot see
Your two eyes drift away from me.
And don’t respond with more excuses
That you think will lead to truces
In this war. You cannot win;
I’ve seen the way you look at him.
I’ve seen you hold him close and tight.
Your eyes light up with him at night.
I’ve seen you stroke his smooth, round sleeves.
I’ve heard you swoon each time he leaves!
Do not deny I can’t compare.
With me, I know you do not care
About the words I’d have to say
Regarding our impasse.
What is it that I lack to you?
What words doth he say ring more true
Than mine? Just take another look
And know that I’m no boring book.
