It’s not quite what I expected,
the way she responds to me
pushes me away and tells me
that I am not for her.

And I turn away
and let her go
but not without trying
to reach out with my heartbreak.

She doesn’t respond to it
pressing forward
or watching her go.
She’s lost to me already.

Perhaps if I were different
wore another body
or another smile
she would respond to me.
