I Wasn’t Myself

Zoe King

I hate you.

I wasn’t myself when I told you

I am yours.

Now I am aware

That you intended to hurt me.

I was wrong to think

You were afraid of love

In your grasp.

My salvation should remain


You never warned me of

Your faults

I forgive you for

Absolutely nothing

Your betrayal means

I suffered endlessly because of you.

I will never tell you

I love you.
