tonight

i play the symphonic
music
and wait for evening to come
like an old lover
who you call from a broken
telephone to come over,
it’s urgent. 

the beer slides down into
the gullet
like the same lover, while the same symphonic music plays. 

i lay about
in a bedofsheets
a bedofcoldness
and my dolefullimbs

surrounded by books
cause i choose
not to face
the crowd shouting
insults at my
window, 

i rub my eyes
clear my throat
and wait to hear
the footsteps
up the
stairs

Monday 8:27am
I woke up with you on my mind.
You called me babe last night —
my heart is still pounding.

Tuesday 10:53pm
Today I realized we won’t work.
What we are is hurting her.
And I think she matters more to me than you do.

Wednesday 11:52pm
I broke things off with you today.
She barely said a word.
I’ve never regretted anything more than this.

Thursday 4:03pm
I shouldn’t have sent that message.
You shouldn’t have been so okay with receiving it.

Friday 9:57pm
I almost messaged you today.
I didn’t.

Saturday 8:49pm
I’m walking around town in search of alcohol.
They say that liquor numbs the pain of having a broken heart.
I want to put that to the test.

Sunday 2:32am
I heard you texted a girl you’ve never spoken to before.
I wonder if it’s because you’re trying to replace me.
I can’t help but wish you weren’t.
I thought I was irreplaceable.
