0156 He Loves Me Not [21 January 1998]

Author’s note: Every once in a while I feel the need to point out that while some of these are based in truth, not every one is. This one is definitely based on fact. Just an emotion, and a phrase.

Just go away.
Death awaits me
On the other side
Of this day.

I have neither slept nor wept,
For I am ready.
I am willing
To die and to end my pain.

No! Do not argue!
I am going to peace.
Away from the harm
His return might bring.

He loves me not,
I know this now.
For how could he,
Just look at me!

How could a man,
Such as he is,
Love a woman,
Such as I am?

He couldn’t.
For I was just a detour,
A repast,
A forgotten object.

I am not able to love
Any but he.
My love stands stronger
Each day I know he comes.

So why die, do you ask?
I must,
For my pain
Is just too much.

He is marrying another,
And that
Is the cause
Of this pain.

That is how I know
That he loves me not.
For how could he marry another
If he love me?

No! Leave me be.
Leave me to my pain,
Leave me,
Leave . . .
