Intentional neglect,

In the name of love.

Close your heart,

Pretend it doesn’t matter.

How long, how long

Until the hardness takes over completely, not soon enough.

I’ll speak the lies, for his sake.

I’ll destroy my truth to make it easier for him.

I’ll let the pain win, that at least is honest and mine to own.

It is safe with me. He won’t take it back.

Intentional neglect,

In the name of love.
