With all the things I wanted to say
shoved down,
and all the things I should have said
buried under them...

It is no wonder to me
you left without saying anything apologetic
for the way we existed
really without reason.

I had hoped you would come to me
find me, completely understanding my tears
coax the things I wanted to say forth,
then listen to the things I should have said
and apologized for your selfishness.

But you left without caring
that you left,
that you never arrived
in the first place.

are very very sad. Are they just meeting up in cyberspace, is that what the lines say? The sadness of this pulled me down again...

He might as well have been in cyberspace, but he was very present. He was emotionally absent the whole time I knew him, and I couldn't bring myself to admit it until he walked away.

You have done something that is often hard to do. Written a well crafted poem from an incident that is your own experience. It is authentic while still a really good piece. Lovely to read, well done, regards huni.
