Every day

I notice

a little bit more

of what you took from me.

Not to say

I am any better;

us liars and thieves

do tend

to stick together.

One day

I made up my mind

to walk away

and you passed on,

so there were not more


or crimes

to commit.

I looked around

and finally saw

all that I was missing,

and you were gone,

along with so much

of my life.
