Laissez Tomber Les Filles

I looked across the table at her,
Wondering what she was thinking.  
Then, shook my head at a memory of    
A girl that broke my heart long ago.  
She fidgeted in confusion and anger.  
“Do you love me?” she asked.  
“As much as I could love any girl”, I said.    
“Why can’t you just say yes?”, she pried.    
“I’m not the person for you”, I replied.  
“I’m tired of trying so hard”, she fired.  
“I wish you didn’t love me”, I sighed.  
“Did you have to cheat on me?” she cried.  
I didn’t answer. I just looked down.  
She took a deep breath and slid  
My cup of coffee towards me.  
I took a second to think and said,    
“I can’t do this. I can’t love you.    
I can’t spend another night with you.”  
Leaning forward and looking    
Into my eyes, she asked,  
“Did you ever really love me?”.   
“Yes”, I whispered to her,  
“I’m realizing I loved you all along,    
 Thats why I’m letting you go.”
