I’m not sure quite when I began
To fall out of love with you.
Was it when you shattered my heart
Thrice, only to beg for me to
Let you place the pieces back into alignment?
Was it feeling your warmth depart
When my words rung true
After expressing to you my utter commitment?
Was it when your embrace
Ceased to carry passion, comfort, unity?
Was it the disgrace
You felt when you witnessed my insecurity?
Or was it when you whispered
Three words that were merely lies
When you extinguished the last ember
Burning for you in my eyes?
