That Day

I don’t think you really understand what happened
On that day.
I’m not sure you ever will.
I don’t think you’ll ever feel
What I feel
About that day.
You left, like a bird.
Swift, unattached, unmoved.
Just going on your way.
Like an unemotional animal.
What you don’t seem to see;
What the world seems to have somehow veiled you from
Is that you left me alone.
You left me curled in a ball,
Calling out,
Like a newborn.
You left me helpless.
For the greater good, you said.
You just left me there alone.
On that day.
