A piece from my book Noir...

A friend of mine came by to say,

That she had seen you the other day.

I heard her speak as my heart bled,

“What was his name again you said?”

If I only I could just erase,

The tender image of your face.

I, too, wish I could forget your name,

This heart that you returned isn’t the same.

This one is broken; it’s not mine,

Just take it back, I swear, it’s fine.

I’ll live somehow; some other way,

An empty shell I am today.

I’m through with you and your abuse,

You were one time the perfect muse.

You have ignored the things that mattered,

I can’t rebuild the heart you shattered.

This throbbing pain; you are to blame,

Someday— I will forget your name.
