man walking out

 

“YOU’RE INCONSIDERATE!” she yells

And with that she has already succeeded

 

The last one said he was not

and she dismissed him as unconscious

way below her level of awareness

 

The one before that listed how she was inconsiderate too

and she said, “You see, THIS is why this is not working!”

and showed him the door

 

Before that men had apologized

she saw them as weak

spineless jellyfish

telling herself she needed a strong man

 

But this man was an actor

Not a reactor

When attacked he did not go on the defensive

Nor the offensive

He remained still

Invulnerable to assault

Because he knows who he is

 

“I’m sorry to hear that,” he says

 

“If you were really sorry you wouldn’t have done it in the first place!” she snaps back

 

“You misunderstand me,” he continues. “I am sorry that you are stuck in a pattern that pushes people away, too afraid to let me in, when all I want to do is love you.”

 

And with that he walked away

By his own choice

Leaving her for the first time in her life

Standing alone

Her only company regret
