if you wanted to, you would have stayed
i just couldn't bear to see you go
so instead i made a cardboard cutout of you and stuck it in my heart, in the hole you made when you left
cardboard doesn't fit well in hearts, i've found.
it's torn the hole even wider.
and now instead of healing the wound has fresh blood. i picked at a scab and made a scar out of a scratch
but at least you're here, right?
at least you're here.
