i know things are not good when i can't tell if today was a heart day or not

when you see me and speak to me but just like i was someone

you once knew and then decided

you didn't know anymore

yes, i knew things were wrong when you spoke to me

like we had only met once in passing

and it had not been a good meeting

no no no, i thought, today is a heart day

but i knew, even as i took your picture

and i asked you about your cape

that today was the blankest day

i have ever had.
