Don't bother with sorry,

I see through your

soft words now.

I don't know

how I could have

been so blind.

From your gentle voice

comes invisible pain

that tears me apart

like a sharp knife slashing

at my heart.

I almost wish

you would suffer

the same fate,

for one so close to

you leave

a deep wound

that will be slow

to heal.

But nobody deserves that.

Not even you.
