Last Sentence

she mentioned your name
My heart pinched
Eyes steady awaiting for her inquiry

Her: How is he?

Me: We haven’t spoken in weeks, I have no idea but
…I think about him daily

Her: You’re waiting for him then?

Me: No, I just never reach out these days

So you enjoy pain, she says

Me: …It doesn’t hurt anymore

This was the last sentence in our conversation about you.
