You watched her run away

to the arms of another man,

but you didn’t stop her.

You let her carelessly slip

her heart onto her sleeve

and easily slip off her clothes.

You wonder why she wastes

her time on these men who

will never truly love her.

She’s trying to love them

but down in her heart she

only ever needed your love.
