The Cards

Breathe.
You know what’s next, but
He’ll say things like
How great you still are,
How beautiful,
And how much he has learned from you.

Breathe.
You know it’s over, still
He’ll say things like
He’ll still call,
You’re still friends,
You just need to find someone
Who’ll treat you better.

These are just words
You’ve heard before,
So you hug your shoulders,
Take deep breaths,
Pretend to ignore the stagnant air,
His echoed voice,
And the blond behind you
Wating for him.
