"K."

I’m sorry
it had
to go
this way.

I hurt you,
I know.
But I don’t
regret it
still today.

No choice
was left
for me.
You made
that clear
and unfortunately
too easy.

I don’t feel
how you
do.

Caught
off guard
and alone
I had to
speak
the truth.

I don’t
feel
the same
way.

I’m sorry.
Neither of us
wrong,
just no more
to say.

In the end
it will
make us
both
strong.

Not now,
no,
not right now.

I answer
your text
with a
simple
“K.”

Then you got
the message
clear as day.
