Imbalance is when he says words you don’t want to hear
and you call them lies. When he says you don’t care
and your heart hurts because you know it is true and you yell and scream
that he’s never cared, that you’ve always been alone.
Imbalance is when he says he has found someone else and
you say you don’t care and you cry until you
run out of tears and then you cry without them.
Imbalance is when you look at him and think that you could do no better
love no stronger
have nothing more perfect when you know
that is the greatest lie.
Imbalance is when you cannot remember why you love him
or when it all began, except now you cannot remember
how to stop.
