I hear the words
I’m almost sure
I’ve heard before

And my heart
Shatters
Onto your tile floor

Where I warmed
My feet
Once before

By your bed
Where I surrendered
This rapid beating
Chest

Desperate for you
Deprived of rest

And I gave you
All I am
Knowing frankly
It wouldn’t be enough

Though
I so very badly
Wanted it to be.
