Almost

You said this breakup was just a hiccough
But we both knew you would not see this through.

Your nail traced my scar, reviving my wound.
I tried to scream but could not make a sound.

The thought of your absence etched in my mind,
Ethereal tonight like the waning wind.

Those butterflies believing your sick lies
Died in my gut drowning in muffled cries.
Why did you make me fall in love with genies?

Love in Solitude

I fell in love to fill my void,
To break the silence of my night,
To heal the despair from my blight—
I fell in love with my heart destroyed.

But the love I found in loneliness
I lost.
It took your broken heart for me to see,

To choose a love in solitude
Is to lose the solitude in love.
