Poetry By: Indie Skreet

G said on several occasions, 'I don't want to hurt you; I don't want to hurt anyone'. G had always been so careful to delete the few texts. The last one ended the affair. He was so damned cocky that he would never be found out. He lied of course; told her that it was sent in error to the wrong number. The last time I spoke with him he said the atmosphere at home was 'frosty'. I sincerely hope it has thawed now.

He didn't want to hurt me

His family even less

He didn't want to hurt me

But he did nonetheless

He didn't want to hurt me

Was he really so naïve?

Or was I a brilliant actress

Encouraging make believe?

He didn't want to hurt me

Or his family

But inevitably

That was never going to be
