Not Yours

You left me in the rain that night
The universe unsympathetic of my broken heart
I could have let every tiny drop swallow me whole
But I didn’t let them touch me
Because I love even the broken bits
Even the selfish bits you gave me

My love for you is pouring out of me now
Spilling out on the ground

Nowhere for the memories to go
Those evenings sharing everything
Me giving you a piece of me
Just for you to leave me empty

That you-shaped void I keep now
Will have to be enough

Then there’s that warm thought that
If ever I so choose
I can let those tiny drops surround me
When I decide to lose
