It Was Only Once
No more I love yous danced across my luminescent screen
Red hearts weren’t plastered all over the open chat room that only included me & you
I miss you did not echo in my head as I silently read out loud
Nothing reassured me of the unmatched love we once held
Punching XOXO was a not-so-distant habit I attempted to break
Silence took up too much space and sent a sleepless dance party to bed.
No more I love yous danced across your luminescent screen
If there was matching tension perhaps we would recognize our faults
Foolish thoughts closed the curtain on the last nuances of young love
Like a million bees swarming the last flower on Earth,
I unintentionally destroyed it all.
No more I love yous danced through the spaces in your smile
The floor held my attention as the tiles locked eye contact like you once had
Pronunciation of an I missed you was muddled
Resembling something like a fainted curse destined to come to fruition.
No more I love yous glued us together
Portraits of faceted smiles and squashed faces debunked the breaking news
They were tenderly ripped until the remains were unrecognizable.
No more I love yous rang in my ears
Everything was lost.
No more I love yous was the unforeseen result of one faulty judgement call.
