Anymore

“I don’t love you anymore”, You said  
with intent to hurt me  
 
But your words  
fell to the ground  
lifeless, flat  
with no impact  
 
“It pains me to say that” you add
selling me sincerity  
expecting me to buy that
 
Anymore? I laughed  
That implies you did, before...
 
But love has never lived in your heart
It’s too dark and calloused  
for love to settle in  
Too icy and cold  
for love to bloom  
 
Any love that manages to  
seep in through the cracks  
Is quickly sucked dry of all life  
By the venomous narcissism  
running through your veins  
 
Love for you is,  
what you can gain  
Demanding an endless reserve  
to nourish your every need.  
However, you over indulge,  
there’s never enough  
 
And without reciprocation,  
love never gets nurtured  
or replenished,
leaving love to dry up  
and wither away  
 
Given I’ve cut off your access  
to my abundant well  
It’s understandable,
your use for me may have changed
 
If you were being honest,  
 you would’ve said,  
“I don’t need you anymore”  
And for the sake of accuracy,  
I would’ve respected that.
