oft unproved

makes one more curious

with each passing day

is the worry worth it?

once faithful and true

only to be suddenly


a pathetic drama with

only one performer.

yet, never being a


indeed, taxing one’s


yes, regrets enter the

picture but again,

is the worry worth it?

no, and nor is the need

to keep this whole thing

under wraps as our

goodbyes need no encore

but a little applause will do
