My Heart is Breaking

My Broken Heart

You’ve just about lost me;

my heart’s pulse is

no longer beating for you

because you’ve broken it

without even realizing it.

Do you even care about me?

Do you even care that

I’m crying myself to sleep

every single night

since we got together?

You’re not ready to be

with me or anyone else;

that fact is clear.

But I don’t know what

I am supposed to do.

Should I break up with you

because you are an idiot?

Or do I give you

another chance to prove

your indifference toward me?

I will wait impatiently.

I will linger until you tell me

you will fight for me

because I am done letting

you win these battles.
