The edges of my heart
Cut my soft fingertips every time I try to put the shards back together
Shattered, it struggles to not beat itself into pieces once again
It feels as if my heart isn't the only point of origin for the blood Pumping through my veins
Have become nothing but collateral damage from the
Razor sharp "I love you's,"
Serrating my gentle, slowing breaths
Stopping my heart's beating
Every word holding a little less meaning
"I love you?" I say back, confusèdly
Exactly what percentage of your heart you think you poured into your words
Didn't hear any of it.
Licking at the firey feelings of Doubt in my mind
My quieted voice can quench my questions
Smother the slivers of vowels lodged in my lungs
Trust me when I say you cannot hold in the blood flowing from my wounds
By holding My hand.
Shorter than I yet
Somehow your lies stand taller than my inner knowing truth.
Your heart is flawless and filled with youth
Cannot see the end as being anything other than mutual
Like my heart fingers and lungs
Are mutually bleeding
Sometimes, it is hard to tell which is bleeding more
It is hard to tell if I am holding myself together or continuously falling further apart
Not like you would know the difference
You only ever held me when I didn't need it
When I smiled
Your mouth was filled with i love yous
But when I cried
It was never filled with questions
Did you never try to see through me
Or even simply into my eyes
I thought you knew I wouldn't let you drown in my tears
Your reluctance to talk about my fears
Only shoved my own head under the steadily rising waters of sadness
My dear, how did you get so distant?
Moons, planets, light years away
May as well have been located in the andromeda galaxy
Could never truly reach it
Did you really want to become so distant?
When I just wanted to reside by your side
I guess I'll dont really want to know the reason why
Or if it would have even been worth it to try
To fix us.
My girlfriend and i broke up. She says it was mutual, but if one person isn't ready for a relationship, and the other is willing to try, is it really mutual?
