As you stole a glance across the room,
As you locked your eyes on mine,
As words fell from your drunken lips,
As you unraveled my heart one string at a time,
As you stacked each brick upon my chest,
As you embezzled the air from my lungs,
As you paved your path to love’s grand illusion
With pebbles you had gathered off mine,
Did you know, as you left, you’d destroy me?
Did you care? Did you wonder at all?
Did my heart even cross your mind?
Or was I just your daydream,
Merely captured in whiskey
And savored …
One drink at a time.
