I can hear my neighbors laughing next door
the walls here are thin
I’m thinking about you
and I wish I wasn’t
I should have learned by now
heartbreak looks different on you
than it does on me
I write sad poems in cold apartments
and you
I don’t want to write about what you do
it hurts too much
and I wish it didn’t.
