To the anon who cheated on his girlfriend even though he loves her.

I love you more than you can ever grasp,
more than every time a poet tried
to quantify his love,
much more
than that.

But they all say the same words
and I know. I know, I know,
you used to tell me this
before we started dating,
how exactly
men would go about
cheating.

This is why I can’t ever say—
but it’s okay. The guilt I’ll live with forever,
the guilt that keeps me up regretting,
up regretting, up regretting
the night I lied,
is enough.

You do not need
to punish me more
by leaving, I won’t
ever let you know.

She didn’t taste like you, though,
her hair doesn’t sit the way
yours does and her lean
tells of no struggle,
tells of no stories,
not like you, not like
mine.

I swear,
I was just bored.

I am not being nonchalant—
I was simply bored,
it was never
a failure on your part,
you made no errors,
you are
perfect.

I just never deserved you.


Just talk to her, yo. It’ll all work out. Hopefully, she can forgive you. Hopefully, you can forgive yourself.
