No Longer.


The sound of

Crushed pearls

Under my feet

Mimics the sound of

The crushing

Of my heart

When I saw you

With her

I found

It was hard to breathe

Hard to remember

Who I am

I shredded the

Red rose

Sprinkled the petals

Over the ground

Like scattered pieces

Of what used to be

My broken heart

You can't sing me

Any love songs

Because the words

Seem like lies

Like we were.
