You asked if you could hear my heart, it was whole as you listened but only so you could hear how to break it. I should never have let you listen to my heart.
You look terrified. Terrified that you felt something and terrified of what I would do with those three words. You whispered them to me under the darkness of the night sky. I believed you, for no one would hurt another so much if they did not.
I sang to you Billie Holiday as we danced in the middle of that empty street. Whilst I was piecing it together you were tearing it apart. You felt nothing and I felt everything as we danced alone on the street.
