A wall

To stare at walls
Colored in memories
And expect to feel fine
That’s my downfall


An outline

He traces the outlines of her tattoo
Wonders why
The story behind
The cover up
A scar
The past
To move forward
But to never forget
Outward sign of inward battle
Where does he belong
In her story
As a scar
Or piece of art
Time will tell
She replies
If their love survives.

Someone new

My heart breaks
As I see your face
Your longing kisses
It’s been weeks

I turn my cheek
As your kisses seek
Another me
Another she

I feel as a thief
For letting you believe
I was her
Yours eternally

And as I tell you
That I forgot you
That I’m sorry
We’re part of history

I watch your heart shatter
A millions pieces scatter
A divide greater
Than anticipated

My heart knows
I’m a fool for letting go
But you deserve
A better she.
