Before turning away from me,

You pulled the trigger

And shot my heart

You didn't noticed but.

My heart was ripping apart

My blood was gushing down

Wetting the green grass

Turning it brown

You covered your ears,

To avoid

The sound of my heart

Shattering into pieces.

I was falling

Not for you,

But away from you,

My feelings

Were screaming.

Their voices echoing,

Hitting the walls you built

And bending back on me

You didn't noticed

The way I pursed my lips.

The way I clogged the blood

Bilging from my heart

By laying a hand over it

I stood on the brown grass

To hide my puddled emotions.

By the time

You finally turned around

To wave a final goodbye

I was standing there.

Whole.

But empty.
