i sit alone in this empty room again
just holding myself together
all the pieces of my life that are now

you couldn’t stay
we didn’t say it when

as lovers or as friends
when caring for each other became
the weight that pulled us under
and not the moonlight dancing on
the surface of the sea

that night
when we swam away from shore
whispered promises and believed
we would stay and float away forever
now no more
