The Stars Were Beating

And then you severed that beaded necklace,
That stupid necklace that conjoined my heart and your foot,
Do you remember that night?
The doleful rain on my face and in my eyes,
I looked into yours and saw…
Nothing.

You cut those smiling faces into my arms,
“Happiness, glee! These emotions I can understand.”
