Could I even say
all of the things that kept me awake
day after day.
Wishing that you'd be coming back.

And all of the lights.
And all of the nights that we spent in
because of the cold.
And you couldn't stand the shivering knees.
Layers and layers of clothes.
Either way you win.
Though it never mattered in the end.

You have broken me off.

And all of the notes,
And all of the books that you left around,
remind me of words
that you didn't know but you still say.

And all of the walls
painted that ugly obnoxious red
that you said was great.
And maybe the man you always wanted me to be
loved for me to be.
And it always made it seem
like you were so much better than me.

You have broken me off.

You have broken me off.
With your words like hammers you have crushed me.
You have broken me off.

Through the sound of your engine
I missed your final goodbye.
And I yelled that I loved you.
But you were already...
