love song for an ex – a poem

love song for an ex – a poem

 [from Misconfigurations of Love – poetry]

i didn’t expect you to fix my empty heart
knowing we had much to learn
but when I held you, saw you, opened up
a part of me began to burn

any time you want it hard enough
and you’re ready for the pain
any time you feel it deep enough
you open up – once again

i may have waited for a girl like you
to find a piece of broken dreams
imagining the morning hold with you
was enough but now it seems

any time you want it hard enough
and you’re ready for the pain
any time you feel it deep enough
you open up – once again

nothing’s wrong, I know you’re passing through
that’s not a tear beneath my eye
there’s nothing wrong now that nothing’s new
don’t even have to say goodbye

so move along now and be on your way
another good one’s passing by
i can’t see your face, can’t feel the pain
don’t need to know the reason why
