handling me

I'll leave you be
That's what you seem
To desire
You left me standing
Here in this corner
 
It seems like those
Words of love
Were veils
You loved me not
You desired me not
Lusted maybe and
Enjoyed my touch
 
My words are empty
They lay flat and
Flutter in the breeze
This prose does nothing
To soothe my
Torn heart
 
Torn is right
Because
You didn't shred it
No, you didn't
Break it
You pulled me one
Way and then another
I was your puppet on
A million strings
 
Forget you because
You forget me
Promises lay behind
You like a trail
Of guilt
My finger points to
You, the culprit
 
Never knowing may hurt
How much was
Untrue?
If I say it all
Was that's not any
Better but
Parts leave me empty
 
Empty
Now that's a
Funny word
I trusted you and
So I hurt you
You couldn't handle
Me
 
So now you're gone
And I'm still here
Another mark
Another check
Another empty
Feeling
I'll see you
Everywhere
For a while
And then
I'll move on
 
Without you because
You couldn't
Handle me
