Short Stories/ Poetry: Why did you not?

Poem Yen Chi

Remember that day

I dented your new Ferrari?

I thought you would murder me,

you did not.

 

Remember that time

I spilled wine on your new carpet?

I thought you would hate me,

you did not.

 

Remember that day

I dragged you to the beach?

It was raining like you said it would

I thought you would say “I told you so”,

you did not.

 

Remember that time

I did not tell you the party was informal?

You came in a suit and leather shoes

and I thought you would abandon me,

you did not.

 

There were a lot of things

you chose not to do.

You put up with me,

loved me, protected me.

 

I remember that day

I wanted to do something for you.

I waited for your return at the airport,

you did not.

 

I remember that time

I cried myself to sleep and

told myself I did not love you,

I did.
