I Can’t Make Sense Of Your Heart

maxime caron

All the while, I thought he was done

He was moving forward.

He was making an effort to be happy

Was I wrong?

Should I have watched a little longer?

Looked a little closer?

Did I decide hastily?

But I had heard him,

Loud and clear

Each time

He said things

Things that I won’t repeat

For the sake of my sanity

Maybe he gets these hits

As if everything’s going good

Then suddenly it comes back,

Like waves hit the rocks,

Hard and harsh

I hear his voice still

Saying those words

But this time it’s distant

I’m creating the distance

I thought I could make sense of his heart

But this uneasiness stays.  Thought Catalog Logo Mark
