Please note: It is a rant, I know. But I would love to improve it and make it a good poem. Thanks for your comments!

 

15 months after you said never to call
again, you rang me...

i wore the mask of kindness
you delved into my mind
poking about my open wounds
& shocked me, saying there is another
i bit my lip & then smiled through
the phone, a grin of stretched lips,
too contrived to be zygomatic

how i mused of our love,
two years and four months of intensity,
the fire that singed me and the water
that would seemingly soothe

& you said you didn't want to see me,
preceptions might be altered,
your new connection might be tainted

like you tainted my mind after our parting?
how broken i was then, believing i was
so weak, a broken marionette,
you were the one who tugged at my
strings
then you tossed me out
of your window,
but now i have ripped them off me,
with silent skill and a gleeful grin,

i slink away with my soul intact,
leave me be
