The Moment I Threw Your Toothbrush Away

    when did you accept that it was really over?

    The Moment I Threw Your Toothbrush Away
    Confession: I’ve accidentally used your toothbrush a few times
    I can never remember what color I am!
    Except at your place, where obviously, I’m the pink one
    “I didn’t get it cause you’re a girl,” You said
    But now, I know exactly which is yours
    I pick up the green one next to my blue
    Clutch it in my hands like a bible over an open fire
    Knowing if I let go, I’m admitting There is no God.
    That turning our backs on this temple does nothing.
    No more of your silly Egyptian dance by the sink
    Hips knocking together, bones locking in tune
    Open mouths laughing, minty kisses collecting the sound
    Everything we held sacred turns to sin.
    Wrapping your long arms around me from behind
    Wiggling your eyebrows at our naked form in the mirror
    Singing hymns into my hair.
    The quirks that make up our church.
    I close my eyes and try to feel you out there
    Across the concrete river between us
    in your basement sanctuary, maybe
    you’re holding my pink toothbrush in your hand too
    wondering what to do
    I don’t feel you.
    I used to feel you out there. Always.
    Even when you were half a world away.
    But believing in us is blasphemy
    if you don’t believe
    in me
    With a silent prayer,
    I let the toothbrush fall from my fingers
    into the trash.

WOW, a feeling I know all to well. To many times, to a point. they say your broken heart will heal, but mine was shattered, but he last one. I put a brave face , when I am in public. I don't need anyone I say to others, but in my soul I just wish someone whould say those 3 words to me, and really mean it, not for what I can give them. Just for me! Good luck Anna! and thank you
