The signs were all there

Subtle cues so easily ignored

The phone so fiercely guarded

Answers so casually vague


Working late again today

So busy now with work

Girlfriends not seen for years

Going out for drinks


The dinner cold atop the stove

How come you didn’t call?

A new fragrance on the shelf

Places shaved not shaved before


Amazon boxes piling up

New interest in your tan

Sleeping on a different side

Old friends you now avoid


Looking back I see the signs

They stare me in the face

Could it be me not you,

That jeopardized our fate?

I define myself as: a free spirit, a writer, a philosophical anarchist, a poet; a lover of nature, a lover of art, a protector of animals, as well as a devoted friend and partner
