One day in the ward

One day in the ward

Sit down on the hospital bed
Don’t let your feet touch the ground
Think about the past
When he held your hand in his
When he made you feel more than this
Talk to the window pane like it’s him
Feel the warmth of the sunlight
Like it’s his arms around your body
Remember how you once swore to yourself
To memorize all inches of him
With your own lips that could conquer
With your own love that couldn’t falter
Now you regret you didn’t take
The chance a million years would make
Now he’s gone to say ‘goodbye’
Even without your last embrace
Today you hunger for him
Madly, deeply long to trace
His space inside your heart
Your heart that once was his
Your heart he did not claim
Your heart he left for shame
