I kept the vow you broke (poem No. 89 from 100 poems for my sweetheart by Ngobesing Suh Romanus)

When you stop looking
At me
Straight in my eyes,
And would not let me
Look into
Your own eyes,
I know your love for me
Is dead and gone,
And if not buried,
Soon to be;
When you would not smile
To me as freely as before
And your smile is no longer
The broad smile
That I knew and loved,
I know your love for me
Is dead and gone;
And if not buried,
Soon to be;
When you start moving
Away from me
To answer your calls,
A thing which you never
Did before,
And I see worry on your face
When I try to glance at
The messages coming
Into your phone,
I am left with no doubt
Your love for me
Has decamped.
But I am taking it
With calm courage,
Let no one deceive you;
It’s not easy;
How can it be?
After all that we have
Been through together?
An inseparable pair,
We looked;
An inspiration to many,
To know that at the sunset
Of our love,
You left me in the cold,
Into the arms of another.
Is torturing;
It pains so much;
Especially as you were truly
An angel!
The devil has carried a trophy;
But I will be strong,
And make as if I knew nothing
About what’s going on;
While I wait for my day,
Which I know is not far;
I know you and your new love
Celebrate your success
Thinking you have succeeded
To fool me to keep trusting you;
What you don’t know is
I know more than you know;
I know everything,
But what is the use?
Go on if it makes you happy.
I love you and like to know
You are happy.
One day you will know
When I am no longer there,
That I knew everything,
But opted to close my eyes
Since what you did made you happy.
I am so proud on my part
I have never
Broken the vow I took before
God to stay faithful to you;
I am so proud of myself.
You can see I am not the fool
You take me to be.
I have won because
I kept
The vow you broke.
