Before you awake
     I remember our fight
          Your cold silence
                My warm confusion

Before you awake
     I imagine me dead
          And how sad you are
               You didn’t mean it

You didn’t mean to push me away

Before you awake
     I have lived other lives
          I have moved on from you
               And enjoy the city view
From my new apartment
     You are ashes to me
          All your substance blown away
               By a vicious memory
That keeps all records of wrongs

And a vibrant mind
     That has already moved on
           Before you bat the first eyelash
                To stir and kiss me hello
