A Piece of My Heart

It feels like there is
A hole in my heart
Like he took a little piece
When we had to part
He turned away
And I did too
But then he said
“I’ll really miss you”
And I don’t know why
But I didn’t reply
Maybe because I was choked up
And didn’t think I could speak
Or it could’ve been that it felt like
My eyes had sprung a leak
So I kept going,
Dragging my suitcase across the floor
Even though I didn’t want
To have to move anymore
And when I got on the bus
My heart started to pound
Because it felt like beneath me
There was no solid ground
I looked out the window
And saw him watching me
As I realized with regret
There would never again be a ‘we’
He waved goodbye to me
And I waved back at him
And I remembered how
He’d said he loved me, just on a whim
He mouthed something to me
But what it was, I couldn’t make out
I tried to talk back
But only moved my lips, like a trout
As the man started to drive,
I fell into a seat
And I thought of how this moment
Was so bittersweet
I wish we had more time
I wish we weren’t so far apart
But I know he won’t be forgotten
After all, He has a piece of my heart
