You Don't Exist

Lorna Dwyer December 2006

Can you see?

How much I need you now?

The desperation must show.

Maybe that's why

You're avoiding me now.

Crushing my hope

In your hurry to leave.

Fine, you leave.

Just like the others

I don't expect anything

Not from you.

Now you don't exist

Can't cry for people

That don't exist

No hurt from someone

Who's no longer there.
