I Told You So


I wanted to speak to you;

just a few words,

to tell you

you were right

all those years ago

when you said

I’d found a way to ignore

all the people that cared,

so that I could chase

my own desires

and that one day

it would cost me

all the most precious things

in my life.


You said I would be alone

and I would hate it

and the guilt would drive me mad.

Now I suffer,

like you knew I would

and I can hear you

in a far off corner of my mind;



HG – 2017
