i sat on the lawn chair
drunk and avoiding company
because it was so dark that night,
i didn’t notice when you slipped into the spot
next to mine without a sound, i liked that

you turned and asked me if i felt numb
because it was clear that you did yourself,
i nodded though i wasn’t sure
when it comes to love I usually never lie
but you seemed cold and distant, i liked that

i imagined that there was a chance
you could fall for me
but eventually i’d realize

like my old Japanese violets,
even love couldn’t hold your pieces together

and you would sink into a deeper sadness,
so that one day the girl I knew would be gone
and I’d know for certain that nothing lasts
