All The Pieces of Never

I want to say

that I will

never give my

heart fully.

I want to say

that I will

never find myself

alone in a room

filled with people.

I want to say

that I will

never hurt someone

by what I say or do.

I want to say

that I will

never be dishonest

and put my needs

above the rest.

I want to say

that I will never love

you the way I used to.

I want to say these things,

but I can’t.

I can’t say that I’ll

never give my

heart fully

because I’ve already

given it to you.

I can’t say that I’ll

never be alone

because I’m alone right

now although

I see people pressing

their faces against the

windows, trying to catch

a glimpse of me.

I can’t say that I’ll

never hurt someone

because we always

hurt the ones we

love.

I can’t say that I’ll

never lie or choose what’s

right for me instead

of what’s right for them,

you,

him.

There are many things

I’ll never do–

eat onions, ride in a hot air balloon,

feel the way I did the first time you touched me–

but there are so many circumstances,

moments,

opportunities

that we can never say

we will never.

But,

I can say that I’ll

never love anyone else

in the way I love you,

all the pieces of you.

I can say that I’ll

never walk away

from your eyes,

your hands,

your heart.
