He left me

and the heart

that didn't beat

is now bleeding


My stomach has-

grown small

Since he left (14 days, 3 hours, and 19 minutes)

and smaller still

since i saw his new boyfriend


My old habits die away

when i think about

Somebody Else

holding the the hand

that i refused to, out of embarrassment,


and tonight, Somebody Else

will hear

how breathless he gets

when he's talking about a movie,

or a new  cd

or anything he's remotely interested in


and Somebody Else will look at them

while they're at a resturaunt,

or probably a coffee shop,

and think about how perfect they look together


and He'll play with Somebody Else's


until they fall asleep


while my mind runs away

and my body stands still
