You cried
I saw your name on my receiver
Those six letters forming
A sound so familiar
So comfortable
I had to stop my thumb from
Clicking ignore
I had to hold my hand back from
Moving too fast
And seeming too eager
To talk to you
I wanted
To talk to you
You had confronted me
The night before
You said its time to be friends
You said
Can I confide in you?
I said please
I would love that
You stopped and started my heart
All at once
You put a plank in the space
Where OUR bridge used to be
The night before
We talked like we knew
Nothing had happened
Like you hadn’t hurt me
The day I saw your name in
White letters embossed
On black light
Something changed
Your words, your voice
They made me smile
And you said
I think I made a mistake
You cried
And I cried
Feeling my heart jump
Up through the roof of my mouth
My head racing, making my smile
Into bliss
You wanted me back
You never asked me to forget you
You never asked me to forgive
But I wanted to
They say that live IS forgiveness
And baby, I love you
I love you
