i trace the outline of the moon
as rivers run down my cheeks.
oceans filled with regret
and hollow bones.
a million stars
but none of them compare to you.
how could i hurt you?
i know i did.
i saw it in your eyes.
there was a tinge of pain
that you tried to hide behind some laughter,
but i saw it glisten in your eyes across the room.
i didn't know what i said,
i shouldn't have said it.
so now i cry bitter tears, all alone.
and i promise, i won't get near you,
because i can't bear to
see your pain again.
