Didn’t hear what she said, only the crunch of gravel when she left.

November 11, 2010

When they broke up
she sighed,
bowed her head
and took off
the boxing gloves.
_______________

I cut my feet on
the scattered shards of
her broken heart.
_______________

Didn’t hear what
she said, only the crunch of
gravel when she left.
_______________

Men think and feel
in black & white,
women in colour.
_______________

Desperation: she
turned him to face the sun to
thaw his frozen heart.
_______________

Tears
fell out
of her eyes
and froze on his
cold heart.
_______________

Their passion faded
like a field of sunflowers
on a cloudy day.
_______________

Years later
she still had the date
‘engraved’
on her
finger.
_______________

Her ‘No, I don’t’
shot down the aisle
at the speed
of
sound.
______________

She left
the door open
but I was
already
long gone.
_______________

Their relationship
was like paper, scissors, stone.
He got paper.
_______________

Her sharp mind
dulled
by his
blunt
arguments.
_______________

I got sick
of being under her thumb
so I cut
it
off.
_______________

My knees buckled
under the weight of your
unrequited love.
______________

He became
the ex-husband
she’d never wanted.
_______________

She was a Mac
I was a PC
irreconcilable differences.
_______________

Love knocked on the door
but nobody
was in.
_______________

Our love
is a rubik’s cube
I used to know
how to
solve.

    He was the paper
    That wrapped the stone
    Under her feet

    lies and deception
    the man
    she fell in love with
    never
    existed
