I was yours and you were mine.  

I never imagined that I would one day be mourning our demise.  

Your name lingers on my tongue  

like the bitter aftertaste of a cigarette.   

Last night I kissed a boy who wasn’t you  

and it felt good to have someone else’s name on my lips. 

I have rehearsed every line and apology I would deliver,   

if only given the chance.  

The words press hard against my mouth  

as if they are going to escape   

And I would let them,  

if I thought for a second they would be enough to make you stay. 

Why Didn’t You Stay | Sarah Commins
