I remember that it hurt. Looking at her hurt.

I remember that it hurt. Looking at her hurt.

I could hear my heart beating.
I could hear everyone’s heart.
I could hear the human noise we sat there making.
Not one of us moving,
not even when the room went dark.

I could hear my heart beating.

I could hear everyone’s heart.

I could hear the human noise we sat there making.

Not one of us moving,

not even when the room went dark.

You make me feel less cynical

You is kind.
You is smart.
You is important.

You is kind.

You is smart.

You is important.
