it’s a soft morning –
the type I might enjoy in bed
snuggled in a cavern of blankets
with your body warm against mine –
but it’s harsh today,
the sharp lines of your chin,
a knife slicing my heart into two.
I can already see the decision
painting the corners of your eyes
with blue, desperately looking at me –
don’t make this harder than it is,
your twitching hands say –
even when I reach out to you,
I know it is useless,
and you won’t hear my pleading words.
So in this soft morning light –
a lullaby of shattering hearts –
my hand is cold in the frosty air.
you look sadly at me
and then disappear like a ghost
into empty air,
as if you were never here
(but I guess that’s what you always wanted)
