she thought she knew him
the bright light of the cars passing through
made her see his eyes clearly
he asked, "do you even know me?"
after months of being with him,
why would she not know?
"no, you don't"
it was as though time felt like it froze
why did he even bother asking her,
when he already knew the answer?
the city and its polluted sound
was music to her ears
it's a better sound than a heart that doesn't beat for you.
