Just how did she know that you were back in town?

and how did she know to call you when she was down?

Why were you with her, when you should have been with me?


Its cold when your lying alone in bed at 10 pm
wishing he were there.

And even chillier when you find out


that he was with his ex the same night.


There are ice shards stabbing my fingertips,
when I touch his side of the bed.

I just roll over,
release a shiver

and pull the covers
to my chin,

as my eyelids freeze shut
and my breath crystalizes
as I settle into
our empty nest.
