Stuck in a labyrinth of your thoughts.
When my best friend told me
About the time you kissed the girl at that party I couldn’t go to
My heart shrinked from the size of an avocado
To the size of the pit inside it
But I chose to forgive you
For you were intoxicated
And your vision was blurry
At least she dropped you home safely.
A week later when I snuck into your apartment
Hoping to surprise you on our eight month anniversary
She was there, planting kisses on you
With your hands tracing the back of her spine
My heart was now like a rotten avocado seed.
I cut you out of my life, even though
It was killing me inside
Because I knew the next time I looked
At the sun gleaming on your face
I’d picture your lips over hers.
Back then, it was me tearing apart
My skin aching for your touch
But now it’s four months later,
And my best friend just told me you’ve been
Wondering all over town, hoping to bump into me
Begging people for my new number, hoping things can go back again
But this time I won’t forgive
For now it’s you who needs me, not I needing you.
