BREAKING UPBy Sherrie Havens
[If there were a greeting card for breaking up, what would it say?]
I know with every sentence,
Your words are only pretense,
Your lies are by omission,
Yet not beyond my vision,
A misplaced glance,
A sidelong smile,
Prevents the bliss,
Of my denial,
And lost emotion,
Has sent astray,
Loves true devotion,
Through my tears,
And with enough said,
I am telling you dear,
There's no more head.
