i wait all summer (like fall never comes)

Written December 5, 2014

a wristband snapped perhaps
three months to the minute since
i found out it took you and i lie
here wearing a new one not
knowing how to do anything
like tell your husband i think
of him every time i think of you
and i wonder how he moves
on with his life without you when
sometimes it’s just a glimpse of
a title and everything’s so heavy
and my eyes are all sore and
my skin is all wet and i wish i
could just interrupt his life with
these trivial things that i should
have interrupted yours with while
you were still here to hear me.
