Is it lonely where you are tonight?

A few years later you see her

and your withered, black heart springs to life again.

And you jump from the bench

in the spot you shared many moons ago

where she used to idly sing

and play with your hair

whilst your mind was somewhere else

and she knew.

And you go to tap her on the shoulder,

covered with that grey tartan that you loved so much

she must remember you.


But she’s holding a hand

and she’s singing a song you’ve never heard.

She’s glowing.

Somebody else has been wiping away the tears

that have washed away the stains

of the ones you left on her face.

Somebody else kisses the forehead

that she spent so long resting in her palms

“What did I do wrong?”

And when she sees you,

she doesn’t look at you with hatred or contempt.

She smiles


And it sends a million daggers through your chest.

– k.

    Lonely, yes.
    But, I take solace that she finally found someone who doesn’t make her put her head in her hands and ask “What did I do?” anymore 😊
