Closure
Anu Chan

My heartbeat echoed

The deafening silence as it grew

Ran a mile, not just yet

Stigma marked its way across.

 

The disappointment rings loud

In voices unheard

And words unspoken.

 

The serene calmness in your eyes

Hid the anger beneath

In a flash they changed

Rejection, Dismissal, Grief and then Relief

Reflected in your eyes and you looked away.

 

Until today I never learnt the reason

For the last to form in your pools of brown.

 

It took a while yet now I know;

For questions ring in my head all night long

They sing a goodnight’s song.

While you are calm

And your smile isn’t a mask.

 

Now I know;

Relief came in the closure we deserved

The closure you got through my words

Your questions answered and worries cleared

All pain replaced with the feeling of a dull void of emptiness.

But my part was never delivered

For you never looked back to see

Tears staining my face.

 

And now I know

Why I never should’ve let you go.

Maybe we could’ve fixed it.

Maybe we could’ve fixed us.

The closure I deserved

Never came my way.

 

And nights upon nights

I toss and turn around in my sleep;

Questions they sing a song

All night long.
