Go on

You wake up
you go on
it’s tomorrow and
yesterday you said things
and now you go on

forget or forget or ignore or pretend
and you just do it again
you go on

and you said you’d be x
but you knew you’d be y
and you wanted a smile
but you just made her cry

you go on

and she goes on
and you do the stuff you do

sometimes it rains in the night
and you wake up hearing something
the air trembles and she walks past
she’s tall and elegant and she’s you

you breathe
you stop breathing
you hold out a hand
she’s gone

you go on
