Déjà Vu

My Broken Heart

This feels like déjà vu.

I believed I could trust a man
to make me a priority
but once again
I was disappointed.

I’ve been here before:
on the receiving end
of heartbreak.

And I remember when
he said we would still
be friends just like you did.

And in the same way,
I will see you walk away
never to be heard from again.

Such familiar lies
from your bittersweet lips.
