go away, you said
your eyes were glistening with tears
that slowly, one by one, fell from your cheeks
while your fingers desperately tried to stop them
from reaching more further than your lips.

how did we end up there,
confused and broken beyond repair?
a little lost and a little scared
to fix something that we once handled with care

were you already gone before the night you left?
just one sorry and one I love you
and I never saw you again.

our love was like a flower
sprouting from our ribs
so I cried and plucked it out
but the roots still remain.
