Unlove Poem

This is not a love poem,
as much as I want to write one.
I tried my best to make you see
what your smile does to me.
But one last push
and one last tease
have pushed me over the edge.
I am finally over you.
Too many tears shed,
too many secrets well kept.
In the end,
everybody knew except you.
You called me small
and told me I was wrong.
Yet then you saved me a seat
and seemed to actually care.
I can't read the signs
and I doubt you can even see mine.
I'm done waiting around
for something that's never going to happen.
In the spirit of Valentine's Day,
I've decided to write you an unlove poem.
