:in forgiveness

at some point I
stopped being angry
at you
for the way you left
how you were there
for so long
and gone in an instant
our whole relationship
I told you to do things
for yourself before me
or anybody else
and that is what you did
you didn’t leave for me
you left for yourself
and although the taste
you left on my lips
is bitter now
I do hope if mine
is still lingering on yours
its stay is short
and sweet
