To The Moon
You asked why I was leaving what it was that you had done.
I told you there were many reasons, not just a simple one.
How you only halfway listened, I was acknowledged but never heard.
How I could write you poetry but, as for encouragement you never seemed to give a word.
How you told me you would change things claiming you were a work in progress.
But it's been years now and you've been stagnant so sorry if I digress.
You always wanted to change me into something that I wasn't.
Then you would turn around and claim who I was is just unpleasant.
When I would hide you never bother to seek for me.
It was as if I were a lock and you were just too lazy to look on your ring for the key.
You said we were two halves of the same whole but, you only ever gave half of whatever I poured into you.
Recently I've been feeling like a Hallmark card, silly one liners never going deeper, and you are sitting here picking at the glue.
It's not that you never cared, it just seems like you never cared enough.
Or perhaps in a twist of fate I went and cared far too much.
I guess what I'm trying to say is that we never were a match.
We work as well as a tire that just wasn't that well patched.
So when it came to us there were many things we lacked.
See darling you did love me to the moon but never back.
