I know

Your little giggling friends
have not hidden the rumor well,
and now

I know

That you,
sitting beside me,
was seldom coincidence,
and

I know

The meaning of that smile
you’d fail to conceal,
and those eyes, those eager eyes,
and

I know

From the corner of my eye,
amid my distant pondering,
how you’d watch me, always,
as you grew beautiful,
and

I know

Your secret,
your desire,
your love,
and

I know

My aching heart
has only just noticed
your absence,
and

I know

Those feelings in you,
how they’ve finally flourished
onto someone else,
and

I know

That in me they’ve burst,
for all that could have been
has distressed me
in bitter regret

Honey,
only now do I know

And I’m sorry

For us.
