Verified Indifference

“It is over.”

Was what she had said

He was indifferent

And that sealed the deal

She had made the right decision

His cavalier response

To her goodbye

Was just more evidence

Of his lack of caring

When he was no longer

Willing to fight

For what they had

She knew on her own

Was where she should be

No matter how frightening

That looming loneliness seemed
