A Million Pieces


I smiled and laughed
with nonchalant ease
I even indulged
in witty repartee

You were amused
It made me proud
You nursed your drink
I imbibed too much

I teetered
as I rose to leave
You put out your hand
I clung too long

As we went
our separate ways
I waited
for you to turn back

but you kept going
Your brisk steps
trod on my heart
breaking it into

a million pieces
once again
