Mistakes of the past
the lies whispered
all over her body
the regrets of forgiving, taking him back.
Crimson stained into his shirt color
with late night pages and the scent of juicy couture
the love they shared was
as fake as that tramp he was assimilating with
shoving her belongings into a large suitcase
the inscribed necklace for their one year anniversary
(tossed into the bag)
his favorite night gown
when she wore his hands were glued to her body
(crumpled up inside next to)
a picture frame of the family they were starting
two heads, two hearts, two bodies
only one was ready.
snow tossed from sky to ground
found her feet dragging to the place she least wanted to be
her life in bags weighing her down
eyes red and swollen from the drippings of her heart.
The empty foundation of their soon to be
incomplete empty bleak.
like her heart, it too was missing something
Stepping, gliding, over pieces of their unfinished life
she sits on the snow covered foundation
of the existence she’ll never go back to
for everything it meant
