Elephant in the room


It wasn’t quite clear

when she spelled love

With a u

but she said it

her good bye

seemed lost as she turned away

but I heard it

her kiss left me wanting

but I felt the weight of her lips

and not the corner of her

mouth

she didn’t turn as she

walked away

hurt trailing  off her

like the smell

from an elephant trapped

in a room too long

the circus has  finally left town

and all I could do was wave
