You need have said nothing but the one thing that mattered again and again
And again :
But then , you would have needed to believe in it too , completely .
It was your half belief that killed your unripe thesis;
I really wonder if you are sorry about it now though you were shattered at the time .
What you did not fully believe in you should not have said and certainly not have dragged anyone else into .
I am not happy , merely relieved , that I never really believed you .
I merely wish I could have laughed a little more .
Sadly , you found it cruel.
I wish then that I could have been crueller .
That would have been truly kind .
