Just Shut Up

Sit still, shut up, and absorb
the gravity of the pain
you caused when you told me
forever but bought
flowers for another girl.
You’ve never bought me flowers,
but white roses are my favorite.
A petal for your troubles
and a petal for love wearing thin.
Feign ignorance to replace my innocence.
Say nothing I don’t want to hear.
Oh, the flowers are for me?
You were going to ask me to marry you?
Why didn’t you say so?
Maybe I should shut up.
