I'm Sorry They Hurt You Like That

There is a quiet corner

Of your heart

That plays on repeat

That day when you were

Only 13 years old

And they left you.

In that corner of your heart

It happens again

When you don’t see

A reply text,

And when you’re alone in the snow,

And when the barista

Doesn’t get your name right.

That little 13-year-old you

Has something to say

If you give a hug & a listen.

I wish I could send a hug too <3
