… governments should be afraid of their people!!
People shouldn’t be afraid of their government.
I woke up to the smell of my heart breaking,
scrambled eggs, burnt toast, and complacency.
I did not feel your lips on my forehead this morning.
did you stop loving me over night?
I know we had a fight and you screamed,
“you don’t even know me anymore,”
and I threw our picture in the trash can,
“how could I know you when you never
let me in?”
but this was a lover’s quarrel, right?
you said I would need to be patient.
you said I would need to keep the door open,
unless you were the one to close it
and I swear I didn’t know saying I loved you
would change anything.
I didn’t know losing my cool in the heat of the moment meant losing you, too.
you did not clean the kitchen this morning,
but you left a note that said “goodbye”
are you sure you didn’t take me with you?
I feel lost.
