The Dagger

I am laughing
but inside
there’s devastation

I’m trying desperately to hide
my
ragged breathing &
utter disappointment
of realizing whomever
I thought you were
is not the case anymore

[HOW MANY TIMES
DO I HAVE TO DO THIS?]

how many times am I
to misread the signs

& get flanked
by the wound
your dagger left in my side
