it was an accident.

that sent me careening over the edge.

you're not there.

but that's okay. you have more important

things to do than watch me break down.

you're with him.

inching ever-so-close to falling deeper

in love. and that's okay. don't bother apologizing.

you never noticed.

how butterflies attacked my stomach and

that the pinkish hue on my face that betrayed

my verbal denials. but maybe that was for the better.

i already lost.

oh, well. game over. i never had a chance

to begin with. keep my everything.

i'm too busy falling to take it all back.
