Daily Prompt: Tempted


Tempted

You wonder why

I appear unmoved

at the harsh words

tumbling from your lips

You cannot fathom

how normal I seem

in the face of accusations

you fling at me

It isn’t that

I am unfeeling

or unhurt

I am tempted to tell you

but I hold back for fear

you won’t understand

that I just have

no more heart left

for you to break
