zero-sum

it wasn’t like i didn’t know
the way you came over that night
weepy from the break-up
with a girl you hardly knew
and telling me how much you needed me.
i can’t do this alone, you said.
i didn’t believe a word.
but your win was my blinding desire
that it could be true.
and so i let you stay, let you
cradle your head into my lap
believed that your callousness
was part of your pain.
i was wrong.
