the first break up’s end…

02 Nov

i convulsed & shriveled into my bed
punching feathers in vain
the whole street knew who was to blame
from the piercing cries of your name…

then i scooped through 2 Walmarts of ice cream
and bent 20 ears with how i still loved you
and it was after the 23rd load of tearful laundry
that i realized you really just weren’t worth this ado

i swore i’d never love again until
i knew that he could never break my heart
and i’ve been pretty keen on that promise
but i’ve also been good on extinguishing sparks…
