I never wrote you a love song
but then, we were never in love.
It's a funny thing- to be sleeping with someone
or anyway, it was fun.
I never sent that last email
the one that went "yeah, I'm just ganna
hold my breath"
(but you get the idea).
I never told you the truth
though I was incredibly honest.
You praised me once for this
and it was the one compliment
I could accept.
Right up until I jumped ship
swam to shore- or better yet
swam to the depths again to remain
nameless among those other
fish in the sea.
It wasn't a proper goodbye but then,
it wasn't a proper introduction.
