Refutation. 

I can prefigure with

Conviction that when

You wake up to the

Empty right side of the

Bed tomorrow, you’ll

Miss me. You won’t let

It show. You knew I would

Go. You will button your

White shirt with indifference

And move to the pantry to

Snack on a granola bar.

You’ll then proceed to

Pretend to read the newspaper

When in reality, confusion

And panic is starting to set

In. You’ll wonder where I am.

You’ll rise from your chair,

With your heart in your

Throat, you’ll move to

Fetch your cell phone, go

To contacts but oh. Your

Ego, the size of a grand

Mountain will not let you

Do so. You won’t call. You’ll

Go back to reading your

Newspaper, as if nothing

Happened, as if your lover

Never existed. You’ll go on.

And I prefigure nothing more.

And I am not even waiting for

Your call, your ego and narcissism

Is an obstacle we both know of.

There was no refutation here,

I was right, you wouldn’t call.

Hey folks! Leave a like or a comment if you like this poem. It would mean the world to me.

Stay positive. Stay happy. ❤️

  1. I read this poem the day it was uploaded (25th) and I instantly broke. I just had to call her but then again, my monsterous ego somehow managed to stop me. Then again, the next morning when I got up, all I could think about was her. How did this happen to us? When I picked up my phone to see if she’d called, your poem flashed on my screen again. (I read your poem the other night and locked my screen and slept). However soft I may seem now, my ego is just the opposite. Or rather, it was. I was afraid of losing her. Yes I finally called her up today. Things didn’t quite turn out the way I wanted. She’s moved on now. I know it’s all my fault. But that doesn’t matter. What matters is that this poem you so thoughtfully wrote, has helped a person when he lost everything. You have a beautiful talent girl. 🙂 Keep it up.

  2. What a surprise it would be if my call you did see. You would have pinched yourself. Just to be sure it wasn’t a dream . Maybe you would not have answered because my thoughts you could not fathom anymore. But broke I have become, since u left. Chaos has ruled where once there was order. So I must change to surprise you and maybe win you back again. ( please dont mind me, 🙂 🙂 :-)I loved it ,was caught by its spirit and so I kept going. Awesome piece)
