I Can't Do This Anymore

Brush the hair back from my face

Wiped my tears away with barren hands

Nothing of this makes any sense to me now.

We built a love I thought nothing could break

But if anyone can break something, it is me

Through what I consider to be no fault of my own.

I frantically begin looking for my phone

Maybe I can hear his voice

And all of this will suddenly become clear.

The phone rings but he doesn’t answer

It is a call he unwilling to take

Because it is me the other end.

I sit for an hour looking at my phone

Wishing he wanted me

Praying to have his heart back.

Days later I’m sitting on a porch

Thinking of nothing really

When it occurs to me I’m done.
