The 'Act' Of Closure
Your feigned affection closes the conversation
I've never lied so hard in all my life
Relief replaced by fierce frustration
I envy that you know you'll sleep tonight
Did I do ok? Say all the right things?
Now do you believe me more than last time?
I could never change how I'm wired, how I think
But you see no harm in leaving this behind
Seems you were right when you made me move on
Not one part of you was roused to fight
The faintest glimmer of hope that you were wrong
Has lost it's last shimmer of light
