Let it Go
I was willing to let it go.
Let the dogs lie peacefully, but you had to utter those words.
You did not see how it’s my usual nature to ignore someone like you,
to let the wind carry your stupidity away before it lands on my shoulder.
This time it was different.
Your disrespect in the way you muttered something under your breath.
I will remind you it was your fault.
I was not the one who took something that was not mine.
You were the one who kept pecking.
You were the one who created this divide between us with the reaction on your face,
and the returned response on mine.
There was nothing left between us except your frustration and anger,
and all because you could not let it go.
Those words I could not hear.
I knew what they meant,
and this is why I was not silent.
