Love Diss

Your words echo in my head–
Love, obsession, longing.
You wanted me so terribly,
Couldn’t wait to have me.
Then, disillusioned, dropped me;
Dropped me with scorn, abuse, derision;
Abandoned and forgot me.
Shut me out of your future;
Slammed the door to your life;
Accused me of shallowness and callousness–
You who never really tried to know me.
You, who,
When I didn’t fulfill your fantasies,
Dismissed me utterly out of hand.

— William Baldwin
