Blue

He took a baseball bat to her heart

With complete disregard for her dreams;

He shattered her soul. 

And when she looked up through broken glass 

Night had turned to day again -

And the sky

                           was blue.

January 42nd

You 

Are filling in these empty holes

So fast;

Oh so fast. 

You

Have no idea 

How much I need that right now. 

 

 

Keep shoveling.

Six

"You dropped this."

He picked up her heart

Holding it ever so gently,

And stretched his hand out toward her.

"No, I didn't.

I threw it away on purpose."

"Why?" 

He asked simply.

"It is broken."

He pulled a bandage from his pocket.

"There,"

His arm outstretched toward her once again, 

"It is fixed."

I have tried 

                   So hard

                   For so long

        To understand.

Oh, 

                 Do I understand now.

First Aid

Your smile,

Your memory,

 

Have been a bandage for me;

 

For my heart was broken recently.

 

And for that, my dear,

I thank you 

Tremendously.

This Time Around

Why, you ask me,

Why did you come back

To this place?

 

Come back? You don't understand.

I never left.

 

The people; I answer you,

Holding back thoughts and memories,

Afraid of showing just how much 

The People,

Meaning You, and the others,

Have impacted my life.

 

I looked at the skyline again tonight,

The same skyline I stared at on my final call with...

Wasn't It

I don't know how you could say you loved me like you did,

And then go on to break my heart like this.

I guess it was always me, loving you, after all,

Wasn't it?

Conversations with Myself

Sometimes I say your name aloud
Just to see if I can hear you say mine;
How blessed am I
To be so far away 
And yet, you remain by my side.
