Remember when you knew me

I swear there was a time
I knew your every thought
lying next to me

Expecting my chest,
your pillow
without concern

The dawn, irrelevant
another measure
of the time
wasted among the free

And then today

I hate that you hate me
covered in vines
together alone

Your kisses for others
stoke her hair
I told you it was fine

But words don’t help us
you promised
you lied

There was a time
I waited for you to choose
you did

The wine
an easy transition
from my collection

A cellar
built for you
and then today

Her solitude
enveloped by you
an opportunity

I told you so
you’re a natural
at my expense

You liar
