Mr Nemo, how do you do?
A safe albeit silly start.
The thing is, even though I pulled an “exist stage left”
I am still here.
Only now…(but that is where the problem lies)
What does one add after an “only now”?

Only now… I am free
Only now… I realise how free I used to be.
Only now.. life makes sense.
Only now..I tell myself life makes lesser sense than the day I painted my toenails the garish colour of a sunset to make you smile
Only now.. I think things were special because I needed nothing, least of all you.

Will you smile Mr. Nemo?
Will you be smug while I pretend not to cry?
Will you care enough to read this?
Will you be too disappointed to reply?
Will you come say hello again
when I bitterly swallow my pride?
and smirk at my weak resolve
when I ask to take back my goodbye.
