I offer myself to you

You look at me

With a coldness

You say “NO”


“Not here, not like this”

Your words not mine

There were many others

I had turned down for you

To be coldly treated

By someone I loved


It was as though

You had punched me in the chest

I recall my body shaking

Why, why what had I done


Right there and then

I should have walked away

And stayed away


Being told you wanted me

But not like this

There were others to consider

I didn’t know whether

I was coming or going


I should have walked

I regret I stayed

And stayed

A fool yes

You could say that
