A Grimace of Averted Eyes

And I will miss you(r pretty face

arched eyebrows and pointed chin, your long long lashes)

when you are kind and thoughtful and (that doesn’t happen often)

 

But I won’t miss you (as you are now, spiteful and hateful and miser-empty)

I won’t miss your insults

I won’t miss your arrogance and defiance and the pain that you bring

(when you walk into a room, the shouting always begins)

 

I think I can bear to live without (you, without your snide remarks)

Even if I don’t think

Try not to think

About you (and the way we never used to be).
