Now, if you don’t mind, let me set the scene.

It was a Sunday night.
We were enjoying
a walk in the park
in the brisk moonlight.
I gave thanks to the autumn winds
for pushing me in your direction.

That’s when you told me –
flipped my whole world
topsy turvy.

I didn’t anticipate
the news you were spouting,
how painful it must have been.
I did appreciate your honesty.

The truth hurts sometimes,
so just roll with the punches
and stay on your toes.
Be impatient for the next jab
because it hurts more
to know you’ve been had.

Forget about all the accolades and recognition.
Je crois que t’amour soit mon grand prix.
