heartbreak IV

 

there is a part
     in heartbreak
of heartbreak
when the old reel
     clickety-clacks
 and puffs out smoke–
gets stuck on
         the same
    frame
         the same
    phrase
over and
      over again:
            what if,
            what if,
            what if…
            what if
I told him that
     I miss him?
            what if
he sends me
  a message:
hello?
            what if
we talk
     and it’s all
 forgotten, all
gets back, grows
     back again?
            what if
I             could
    somehow
get           him
     back?
