Ghosts

You reached into my chest and grabbed a hold of my heart

I thought we would stay entwined like this forever

But then you let go and my heart fell and shattered into a million pieces

And then you didn’t just leave. You kept your presence there and proceeded to crack every single rib

And I buckled but held onto your ghost

And I screamed but I thought that was love

And then you finally left and I could no longer breathe and I could no longer move and I was just empty

The worst part is that you did this all without the slightest glance in my direction

And now I spend endless nights wide awake unable to sleep at the thought of your voice
