i know what you did


there is this pattern i keep seeing
it is never spoken of
not a single word said
except the one time you said to me
i would not hold it against you
its not quite a smile on my face
thinking
i am not the one with the pattern
i am not the one this time
there is this pattern i keep seeing
and i wonder if you see it too
if you even know
how it makes me feel
to not ever say a thing
i would not hold it against you
except that it is hidden
subversive
time spent upfront
making it ok by separation
time spent upfront
separating you from me
subversive and derisive
just to absolve you
i see this pattern and i
i know what you did
it would be ok
if you knew
how it makes me feel
this time spent upfront
being subversive
