‘Counting’- By Callum J. Jones

One week ago, I betrayed you.

You screamed at me out of anger and frustration.

I felt guilty and unworthy.

But of course, you were right.

Two weeks ago, I angered you.

You now hate me as if I’m guilty of an unforgivable crime.

I feel ashamed and undeserving.

But of course, you were right.

Three weeks ago, I infuriated you.

Your anger continues to rise, as if it’s a swelling tide.

I feel crushed under your wrath as it festers into a pill of bitterness.

But of course, you were right.

Four weeks ago, I enraged you.

You now avoid me as if I’m infected with the Plague.

I’m locked in a cell of pain and self-hate.

But of course, you were right.

Five weeks ago, I deceived you.

Your fury has now diminished, as if it’s a cooling furnace.

Even so, I’m still hurting as you continue to evade me.

But of course, you were right.

It’s now been five weeks since I went behind your back.

Not that I’m counting.
