(Post breakup – Four weeks, I think?)
I changed those purple bedsheets you brought
for some reason I really hate that colour
and having those around didn’t help a lot.
(2nd July – Alex’s party)
the guys have stopped giving me the look
they think I’m getting better
I just have mastered being a closed book.
(18th Nov – normal day)
I saw you out of the blue
felt nothing but a clear indicator
You were never the one, were you?
(24 Dec –
Anniversary date First step forward)
the ring is somehow returned
words no more bitter
my grief completely burned.
