never has complete denial

torn a person up so much inside

(while doing its best to plaster

the charade of a smile

across a face)

as when someone

agrees with a friend, a family member,

a coworker, or just some

random stranger who might have the

compassion

to listen to the self-pity drivel of the

“just dumped,”

that it was

“their loss”

(meaning the “dumper”)---

though all the intentions may have been the best &

though all the love in the world might be there

to provide a net for when the “dumpee’

hurls themselves off the side of a very tall

building,

does it comfort them at all

to wield such statements so

freely?
