Harden My Heart
by Kendra Hale

You promised me forever
But forever didn’t last. 
You said you would never leave me
Never went by so fast.  
Left me here sitting alone
With our memories
Lost in this utter despair 
Like all the time has been wasted…
Since we were thirteen. 
All those memories stolen away 
Once happy, cherished even
My heart now hitches 
Looking back, my memories tinged gray
You said once we were like Romeo and Juliet
A love for all time
With years came knowledge
You were never only mine
Such an idealistic puppy love
All it has done is left me jaded 
My friends say move on
But I can’t, not while you’re still breathing
Drink with me one last time
Let it harden your heart 
Like you did mine
Once upon a time my favorite color was blue
But now, more specifically 
It is the cyanotic pallor that has become your hue.
