Your instant blindness
your pretended costly kindness
that I can’t mistake for more

Your eyes off my face
your textbook words in place
when you only want to walk out the door

Your hidden jealousy
your acted sympathy
your attempts to distract me
while you’d love to see me on the floor
like something that you tore
to mark it yours, reined in for evermore
