one word, one nod from you
I completely lose my senses
all over again
face in my hands
heavy sigh, close my eyes
I mutter
a string of expletives
remember why, remember
why you’re not together
you weren’t good…
despite the passion
the consuming must-have
eyes burning with fighting tears
I still feel your touch
brush on my cheek
I lean in — to nothing
I will sit
run my finger over and over
a scratch in the table
furrowed brow
and try
to not think of you
