Turn And Stop

There had been no debate.
He knew
Life must stop for him,
her friend,
her companion.
For I love you no more
she said,
she firmly said.
And I am leaving tonight
she said,
This is right.
But he cannot see the right
in her,
in her leaving.
And he begs her to stay,
please stay,
stay, please stay.
But her mind has turned,
she’s turned,
head turned away.
