Problems begin when we don’t define things,
Like for example-
What did you mean
When you professed your love?
And since our definitions were different
We expected different things.
When those expectations fell through
Like skates on thin ice,
All we could do was sink down and down
As the cold water filled our lungs.
Truly capable of change?
Is there any way to replace the dead batteries
In a broken heart?
How many more days do I have
Until the warranty expires?
I’d love to trade places
And find meanings in your empty words for me.
