Happy/Loved/Her (14/12/13)

I dredged up that tiny bit of love
And told you the most painful truth.
Be happy. Be loved. Find her.

I turned away and began to rebuild my life.
Filled in the spaces you’d carved out
And blocked in the shape of your shadow.
I didn’t even begin to think
That you were doing your own filling in.

You found happiness.
I spread mortar across a brick
And filled in the gaps some more.
I didn’t notice at first.

You found love.
I still had my torch, peering into the dark
And looking for a new distraction.

You found her.
I told you that you would, one day,
Though I didn’t think it would be so soon.
