I feel the blow to my very bones
And as painful as it is,
I do not cry out.
But more painful is the agony inside my chest,
And the constricting of my heart;
The way it skips a beat and I forget to breathe.
I guess I deserved it for my thoughtless words,
But why so hard?
Why with so much force?
And why to someone you supposedly love?
But love is pain
And without it you cannot grow closer.
So I take it all in silence,
My eyes downcast.
I look everywhere but her eyes.
I know there will be regret,
But it is nothing compared to the betrayal I feel.
She said she would never do it again.
Is this the proof of her promise?
When wetness falls onto my thigh
I realize I'm crying;
However, I feel nothing but the burning of my cheek,
And the numbness of my soul.
