Let us agree, it is dead

Because I knew
I refused
Why bother I asked
When asked to give a damn
When offered a last chance
One final dance
To reignite a fire
That had died
From lack of interest
My heart waited
For your words
Your eyes
Anything at all
So I let it die
You poked the corpse
And wondered why
But I knew
And didn't ask
It didn't last
Without a hope
Without fuel
For the fire
You didn't care
Until it was gone
So let me die
Alone like I am
Why try
When we both know
It is done
And was
A long time ago
