AS MUCH AS I PRETENDED TO LOVE YOU
I think about our life together
so many years ago, and I try to
remember a happy time, some years
in there that we were in love with each other.
I can’t seem to remember any length
of time that I loved you – or that you loved me.
I do not long for the past, I do not miss you
and I do not want you back.
But I do hope that someday I find
someone I can love as much
as I pretended to love you.
