But he said he loved me.
Then why did I see him with her?
Behind that corner…
So no one could see them
Except for me.
His fingers stroking her cheek,
Her expression of pure bliss…
Made the taste of my mouth
And I had to watch…
The space between them
I don't know what happened
My legs threw me into oblivion
While my scattered mind tried to make sense of
My pounding heart;
Of what just
I rubbed my face so violently;
Thinking somehow it would wash away
But the skin around my eyes broke,
Blood trickling down my cheeks.
I looked as if I were crying the scarlet liquid.
As I stared at my trembling hands…
I believed it true.
The same way I believed…
He loved me.
