"Please, don't worry about hurting me
I have no feelings anyway,"
I said to you with sincerity
As I slid onto the highway.
I told you my heart would never break,
But I slowly hear it shatter.
It turns out that I truly feel an ache
While my tears go pitter-patter.
You asked what makes my heart soar,
And I kissed you in reply.
But to you I only was a bore,
And with that, you said goodbye.
It was her in your arms you longed for.
You might have thought it were clever.
I guess to you we never belonged.
I really hoped we would end up together.
I burn my mouth and lungs with puffs of nicotine and I realized it feels too good to burn myself alive because darling, we were a perfect match but matches were meant to burn.
It was cold and crisp and leaves crunched under our feet as we walked to the bench. I looked in his eyes and he looked in mine, and the world around us fell silent. The trains stopped blaring and the lights stopped ringing. The cold rail under my left hand was no longer cold when his hand touched over mine. And in that moment, the only thing moving was his eyes darting back and forth between mine.
I think the worst type of crying is when you don’t know the reason for your tears but you know you are broken and can’t be fixed.
“I love you, darling, please stop crying.” The tears poured down harder. “I will glue you back together even if it takes the last drop. Please, stop crying.”
He squeezed my hand just a little bit harder, and the world started moving again.
