I loved her…

Her ups her downs 

Yes’ and no’s 

I stood there 


She knew what she wanted 

She wanted him

She meant to leave 

Didn’t care that I needed her

Needed her eyes to look at me 

Her mouth to speak to me 

Her hands to hold mine again

I needed to take her pain away 

Although I had so much of my own 

I needed her time 


Her tomorrows 

I needed to go home 

Somewhere buried deep 

I maybe needed my mom to talk to me…

Following that thought specifically 

I knew I needed a drink
