what I gave you

I gave you goodbyes

like they were mine to give,

with syllables that struck themselves

apart,

I gave you apologies

like they were yours to take,

the roughest words

still paralyzed

on the edges of my lips

 

I gave you all I ever had

like it was worth the pain,

and I forgot the silences

can drive us all

insane
