Rage

Heather saw me walking hand in hand
with the beautiful Stephanie
and I felt the fear burn inside
I am sure Stephanie felt the same

And she said
“This is it then?
I meant nothing to you after all
I thought you were a nice guy”

Even as I felt her hand tighten
I stepped forwards
Hurting...
Hurting...
Oh...

I replied
“Don’t talk like that
You mean everything to me
Please let me have one more chance”

But Heather did not listen
Hiding a smile,
she ran into the maelstrom of the passing world

Stephanie turned
her eyes alight with rage
but she said nothing at all

I pleaded
“This was meant to be casual
I do care for you
but my heart is for Heather”

But Stephanie did not listen
Hiding her tears
she ran into the maelstrom of the passing world

The End
