i delivered my love for you to someone else today
in the rain.
i grabbed hold of his sleeve and said “I like you very much”
and there were tears in my eyes
and it was my dying wish, i realized
to say it to your face.
as i anticipated,
he said we’d be better as friends.
but i didn’t even mean it when i said it
i needed to say it to someone
or i’d burst.
(shatter the glass window first)
