Little White House

19 Jan

The locket with your picture in it
no longer hangs around my neck.
The picture frame I bought you
sits empty on your bed stand,
and in the harshness of the night
given eyes by candlelight-
I carve the word ephemeral into the wall.
You’re shooting arrows at my heart
and that little white house
that we once called home
will always wonder what went wrong.
We will wish it would come again,
but what is left to find
when you’ve lost the garden of eden?
I should have listened
that warm summer night
when you whispered in my ear
“Dear, you’ve got to be careful when you got good love.”
but I was too busy trying to change the world,
I lost the only love that was real.
In that little white house
where we loved so much
I stayed awake till dawn
just to watch our fingerprints fade,
but will they ever truly go away?
The perpetual aching of our hearts.
The boundless confinement of our scars,
all reminders of what once was.
You, My eclipse
And I, your sun
Cloaking the essence of who I was.
You laughed as I lamented
the loss of my soul,
and the smoke from the fire
helped us disappear.
That little white house is a hologram now
and as she disappears into the night
she whispers that we weren’t right.
Little white house
where we lost so much-
we always thought it’d be enough.
Now that little white house is good and gone
And as all our memories break apart
I put back the pieces of my heart
and what we knew all along
has finally come true.
It wasn’t me,
and it wasn’t you.
