Please believe me

I never touched her

Not once

Or gave her the gaze

That belongs to you

She was a place holder

Something to stop the thoughts

My way of getting even with your apathy

Of trying to tell myself

That I don’t care either

I am sorry

Punish me for my carelessness

But do not walk away with my heart

My heart aches… I teased the ‘gaze’ out of a woman who owed it to her partner… she followed it up with flirting… then the day after Valentine’s Day I saw her, destroyed. I need more poems like this. I need to feel the gravity of what I’ve done to her. Thank you, Mateo.

    Thank you! This was a very personal one for me so I’m glad that it resonated somehow. We all make mistakes, and accountability is the first step.
