It’s been a while
since we’ve talked
sitting with our backs
against the world
saying things we
never meant
trying to take it back
before it’s too late
…our only chance
of moving on
it had only
just begun
before it’s over now
in our heated moments
tired of giving
without getting anything
in return
tired of trying
and for what?
would you open your heart?
I could be there
for you
what use am I
…if not
for a moment
I can hardly breathe
giving up
is the hardest part
wishing we could
take it back
but now it’s
too late.
