It’s Not

It’s Not

It’s not that I want to see you burn
and it’s not that I would harm you,
but if I were to see you on the floor
crying out for mercy-
I would turn the other way.

It’s not that I hate you
and it’s not that I think of you,
but if you were to crawl to my feet
crying to be saved-
I would turn the other way.

It’s not that I hold any ill feelings
and it’s not that I have erased you,
but when I cried into your arms
and begged you not to leave me-
You turned the other way.
