Loved

You said you loved me
But it didn’t matter
When you turned your back on me

I cried
I cried for myself
I cried for us
You did not want my tears
Even though you said you loved me

When I asked for help
You gave me anger
When I asked for compromise
You gave me ashes
When I asked for understanding
You gave me scorn
Even though you said you loved me

I know you loved me
Until it was too much to bear
I knew your love had died
When you said you loved me
And wished that I was gone
