Tell Me How

So…tell me how it all happened.

Did it begin when you sent her a flirty text?
Did you send that text between professing your love for me
And conveying how much you missed me?

Did you ask her out on a date
Between wrongfully accusing me of dating my friend,
and expressing how upset you’d be if that were true?

Did you hold her hand after texting me
To ask if you can still see me this summer
Because you couldn’t imagine your life without me?

Did you kiss her between writing about me
And confessing that you’re still grieving the relationship?

When did you begin to fall for her?
Around the time you blew up my phone
To call me a coward
For not responding to your texts
About hopefully getting back together again in the future?

I don’t know when you finally found the closure
I tried to give you at the end of our relationship,
And I don’t know when you found someone else to love,
But these endings and beginnings seem to blur

I think you only began to respect my desire for space
Because you became distracted by her.
