We are chronic
we could talk all day
we feel nothing
express nothing
nothing.

Undo it all
go back to the good
the nice, the easy

We used to interact
an exchange of beauty
and trust

we strayed

Now I have no blood
in my heart
inadequate, insufficient
once, he fixed me
returned the pink to my cheeks
the authenticity of my smile
the vigor of my heartbeat

he left.
no more
I can't speak
nothing
