Make this Easy on Me

My heart has perhaps
one last millisecond beat
for you,
so go ahead, quick –

smear her lipstick
on your


holler her name
instead of mine,

these thin-veiled vows
down to dust.

By all means,
stay, if you must.

But please,
give me just
one last good
……….to leave.


Prompted by Poetic Asides
