Simple Math

It’s simple math 
A sum total 
A result 

Count those moments made for them 
Subtract the moments only for you 
If the sum total is negative 
Can that truly be called Love 
Or a selfish nature inflicting itself in its name  

Finally they 
Lonely but not alone 
Resenting lost moments 
Grieving life wasted 
Leave to reclaim their innate self 

Leaving you 
Lonely and alone 
Resenting the solitary 
Grieving perceived conspiracy 
But is this lament of heart or ego  

This simple truth 
Manifesting itself in hindsight 
But often repeated
For you it was love 
But for them a coma
