I believe in rainy days
and mazes that take a heartbreak
to get through
I've seen you
pledging, openly loving
or was it
either/or, you replied your hand
a white-slab slice through
either way, you drew
division in a million ways, you knew
and I didn't
all the same you said with
sugar-coated teeth, a beam
glaringly at me and where went the gap
where our friendship used to sleep?
it was the first time I needed to miss it.
