The empty spaces between my fingers
Yearn for their matching pair…
Fists clenched, mind set, eyes squeezed tight;
I start to remember
All the conversations once forgotten.
The sting of words,
Like arrows bombarding the heart:
Old wounds never seem to heal.
The “I love you”
All turned upside down.
My heart, slowly sinking
Drifts to the bottom of the seas
Never unearthed again.
