A Perfect Lie

After what he said and done
after all those promises
she never even for a microsecond thought
he'd go leaving her alone
in a small house
with a dog and a book with a strange title.

All she said,
at the moment he walked out of the door was
'you know I never loved you anyway'.
Finishing that line
she waited for him to say something.
and nothing came, but silence.
That's when she burst into tears like hell.

Now that's a poem. Make the reader feel slapped as hard as the sting of discovering being unloved. At that moment. Whap! Biting! Yes!
I love that you set up the scene so well. Was it only the lie to him, or the one to yourself too?
