the city lights glisten upon ,
there is not a smile to come .
instead , you can hear the sound of glass
shattering against the hard surface
that keeps the heart in hold .

the desire to have it , the quintessential movie ending ;
it didn't happen .
loving something is not the same ,
when it only continues to fade .

how is wanting something so bad good anyways
when it is the thing that caused pain in the first place ?

- a real life sappy movie .
