We shared a flat that fresher’s year
In truth we shared much more
Fledgling girls – unspoken pact between us
Bound so tight we were unassailable.
I shared your hopes, your fears, your dreams
A hundred late night shot fuelled schemes
For eighteen precious months
A falling out, with just one
And I am nothing.
It is as if, I never was
Cast off, invisible
Days are spent searching for the sin
So great to warrant such a loss.
You don’t tell me. You don’t speak.
Indifference is total.
What hurts me most
Is that Iike all of you
I am fragile too,
But you will not remember
And I do not have the courage to ask you
