He was mine

& I was his.

I  jumped in & gave him everything I had

& now he’s gone

We don’t belong to each other

We don’t belong to anyone

I am free

And I am scared.

I miss him

his laugh

his touch

his presence in my home

But now I’m alone & I am scared.

No matter who comes up to me at the bar

They’ll never be him

They’ll never replace the man I love.
