I never know enough,

from those good days

and the lifeless tensions,

the one thing I do know

is that I am not for you

despite how promising

it had seemed to me. 

You were so good, 

too good,

and I understand now

it is time for me

to say farewell

to what I thought

was harmless fun.

I gave you everything

that I could

but it was not enough

and I didn’t know 

I was investing

the last fibres of my being

into your vanished self.
