Fall Away
Isabelle5

I think it's over
 1
but how do I explain?
 2
 
 
You call when there is
 3
a lull at your job,
 4
want me to rush off,
 5
meet you at my place for sex and food.
 6
 
 
My stomach hurts.
 7
 
 
Telling you my gas budget is too tight
 8
to spend going back and forth
 9
sounds pathetic, even to me.
 10
 
 
How hard it is to tell you
 11
the love has fled, too much
 12
empty time between our
 13
little stolen moments
 14
 
 
and maybe I grew up
 15
in the silent spaces.
 16
 
 
I don't want to do this anymore.
 17
 
 
Read it in my words, my voice,
 18
the excuses and the way
 19
I no longer drop and roll for you.
 20
 
 
Delete my number, forget my address.
 21
 
 
Don't make me say it
 22
to your face.
 23
 
 
Let me go.
