He Did Not Believe Her (REPOST)

by Joan Serratelli

He Didn't Believe Her (2006-02-25, 2006-02-25 10:15:24.610998-05)

He didn't believe her

when she said she would go

He didn't listen

to her plea for help

He didn't hear her

crying all night

He simply didn't love her

enough to fight.

He thought

she would always stay

He thought

she would be there

in the light of the day

and the dark of the night

He wasn't there

when it happened

He wasn't there

when she left

He wasn't there

when she decided to go

She would never know

how he loved her

She would never know

how much he grieved

She would never know

how intensely he cared

She thought

her parting was painless

She thought

that he would simply go on

without even a care

She wasn't there

to hear him crying

She wasn't there

to see his grief

She wasn't there

to hear his pleas.

She didn't believe him

when he told her to stay

She didn't listen

when he told her not to go

She didn't hear him

when he begged her to live

She simply didn't love him

enough to be saved
