Easy

It wasn’t the act of you leaving,
It was how easily you said goodbye.
The words didn’t even stand alone
But remained nestled in ordinary sentences.
You left as though you’d be back soon,
So I sat for a long time
Just waiting.
Friends assured me it was cowardly behaviour;
You were clearly just scared.
Sometimes I imagine you were
As heartbroken as I was.
If you were,
I could never hate you for it,
I could only love you more.
