P.S. to “The Iron Door…”
You always claimed to know me so well –
Oh, and you did; you do –
So you can’t pretend you didn’t understand
The effect your actions would have
On me –
You can convincingly emote surprise
To the despair of Allie and my sister –
I mean, why would they care?
I can hear you thinking.
But don’t use that excuse to yourself
With regard to me.
You know me better than you know yourself.
Yes, you knew what you were doing –
In some way, probably even enjoyed it.
Every fucking time.
That’s the sad part.
