LOVE LOST

Your last words
Seemed laiden with a finality
(You did what you had to do):
I’ll never contact you.

Yet therein, also, was
Transmitted sheer ambivalence
And blatant contradiction.

Your short message
Was packed with fiery words:
Dramatic,
Insignificant,
Unnecessary,
Avoid,
Not mad,
Peace,
Never;

Don’t try to reach me,
Was the end.

And a feeling of love lost.
