Poetry: “Comfort”

It’s soothing
To think
(Believe)
You’ve neither experienced
My one-sided feelings
Nor acquired my covert guilt
I couldn’t bear to imagine
The depth of your hurt
If it echoed the minor keys
Of my douleur exquise

Nowadays
I can sleep peacefully
Realizing you do the same
As you don’t worry about my pain
Or even know my given name
Never have
Never will

Thank God
You didn’t find Him
In me.
