everything but my heart

Maybe it’s the fact that you showed up in my driveway and m arms instictively raised to hug you before I realized you weren’t mine. Why wouldn’t my heart break when the love that we wanted, pretended was there was all a lie that I couldn’t keep telling. The revelation came too soon though and the realization in a hurry. I can’t say I don’t miss your laugh at times, or even the way you sounded like you had been running to the phone when you said Hello. But you don’t miss me and I’ll never miss love. So I beg you to teach her the things i taught you about love and hate, and give her everything I gave you. Everything but my heart. O, wait, I have to say I never gave that away.
