There was a time

when you and me

were a single word,

and all I heard

in the beating, fluttering earth

was the breath

of you next to me,

when my curves fit yours

because that was home.

My body’s lonely now,

now that you and me

are two different words

and I can’t hear you anywhere

in this silence,

because I don’t remember what it felt like

to hold your hand anymore,

because you decided that anymore,

you didn’t want to hold me.

    When I say, I’ve been there….hmph
    “There was a time

    when you and me were a single word” the first line snatched me in!

      Glad to have written something someone else can relate to! Well, mostly. Because this particular sentiment… like you said, hmph.
