Standing at

over six feet tall

you had never

felt so small.

The tears

are streaming

down your face,

as you plead

with her not to

pack her case.

You tell her

that you can change.

Too late, she says

it’s all arranged.

She has had to put up

with all your moods,

along with your

meaningless platitudes.

Now she is leaving

and nothing you can say

will change her mind

and make her stay.
