Incessant thoughts wonder whether,
You sought me out for love,
Or simply to turn the tables.
When you left me abruptly,
Was I spared by providence,
Rescued by a spark of moral conscience?
Did you ever intend to return,
To rectify the hate you left behind,
Or have you abandoned the farce?
Duplicitous faces blur together,
Habits of deception all around,
Can’t tell which is real.
Heavy in my belly,
Giving birth to sadness and despair,
Twins to warm me in the absence of a star.
