i gasped the moment
you moved away
seconds
s t r e t c h i n g
into days
months
weeks of time lost
time hoping i was
wrong
dead wrong

i cried as
truth finally spilled
from your heart
i had to remove
my heart and
my hopes
drop it
drop them
before hearing
the full truth

if i hadn’t asked
what would you say
if i hadn’t moved
i wonder how
my heart would fall
how full before
it crashed
how deeply cut
before day
break

you don’t care
i am hurt
hysterical
and out of
your way
fixing hearts
is not in
your pay
grade
