Cold Comfort

It’s oddly  comforting when he uses you 
then up and disappears.
It stings at first,
but soon you get 
what you suspected all along:
he didn’t care; he never did.
He hates women and he hates himself
and you were nothing different
from the 5000 other women
he’s friends with on Facebook
and who knows how many
on every dating app.
If you’re one of them, I’m sorry.
I know nothing I say will convince
you to let him go, so know
eventually he’ll ditch you too,
and his departure 
will leave you in cold comfort.
