Like the key to your heart

Like the key to your heart

She left without a note. It troubled my mind more than it ever did. It sounds cliche to say, that I still smell the scent of jasmine on the linens and the sound of her high heels in the kitchen –much like the last times she swore she had enough. She packed her toothbrush she left in the medicine cabinet to the right of the aspirin. And took her white hairbrush she leaves unreservedly on the nightstand, in which she brushes three times through the tangles in her hair, wraps in a messy bun only to wake in the morning with knots in her hair. She left with her jacket. Her undying obsession with lord and Taylor gets the best of my paycheck. The closet in disarray. Hangers on the floor. Much like my pride. But something is different on this occasion. But I am unable to decipher. I make my way to the foyer. And there goes all hope. Not only did she leave without a note, with her toothbrush and clothes. She left this time without a key….. –she left this time.

Vague sound of …

Vague sound of rain
pierces through my song again
but I get distracted by the way his toes move when he plays
so I let it burn

I just poured my heart out
there’s bits of it on the floor
And I take what’s left of it and rinse it under cold water
And call him up for more

He grabs my wrists
as my fingers turn into angry fists
and I wisper why can’t you love me, I’ll change for you
I’ll play the part

And I say baby, so I feel stupid to call you, but I’m lonely
And I don’t think you meant it when you said you couldn’t love me
And I thought maybe if I kissed the way you do, you’d feel it too

He said I’m sorry
so sorry
I’m sorry
I am sorry

I am sorry

What we had ‒ a beautiful magic love there

Long handwritten note deep in your pocket….Words, how little they mean when you’re a little too lateImage
