she thinks he holds too much sway
too much power,
a look between the two after she speaks,
his not so subtle reaction betrayed by the hardness of his eyes,
preparing herself for the inevitable volley,
the passive retort,
another slight in front of their friends,
a moment of awkwardness for all.
all are witness to the tip of a very wide and deep iceberg,
love neglected or love lost,
she’s still deciding.
in that moment,
this is what she leaves behind, gladly and for good.
