She saw him yesterday-choking back a tear-
He just walked by as if the world hadn't ended.
His hands were intertwined with hers
-the one she wished she could be-
And her heart jumped into her throat as she fell to her knees.
She pleaded with God by the vending machines.
She gasped for air, eyes drowned in the loss.
Moments passed, tears dried on her cheeks.
Subduing the fears that helplessness brought,
She slowly rose to her feet,
sweetly whispering a song to herself.
picking her heart off of the floor,
with scar tissue and pieces missing,
she puts it back on her sleeve.
She sees him again, they brush hands in the hall,
She realizes she doesn't know him at all.
The earth hadn't moved, but she had changed.
From lovers to strangers, in the blink of an eye.
Life moves ahead to forget the story of a girl, a guy.
