He/she

He never said
So you never knew
That he offered all he could
Instead you focussed on lack
On what he could not give
And the more he gave, the more
You met him with resistance
But he never said
So you never knew
That he loved you night as day
All the forms of you
Instead you felt unnoticed
Wilting like a flower left to fend
Alone
But he never said
So you never knew
That he missed you morning to night
Every second, hour, day
Instead you focussed on his ego
The I-don’t-need-you-and-never-did
But he never said
So you never knew
If only he said,
If only you
had
known.
