Take care

A deep sleep
reopened my wounds
I couldn't help
but miss you
in my bones

'take care' was all
that you ever forced
out of your mouth

bet you had no idea
how shallow
it sounded
like parting
without saying
'goodbye'.

I could never
beat my instinct
to fall for
your helplessness

your friends surely
had big advice for you
but didn't stick around
when you were deep
into the mess
they led you into.

And if you would have
trusted your heart
you would have seen
we had a lot in common.
