did you love me forever for those three days

when did it become conditional
what happened to the bond
broken like old glue
cracked and brittle, no longer
the consistency you believed it to be

love is a four letter word, cliche
but strikingly true
what does it mean anymore to you,
to me, to a stranger off the street
it’s all a matter of semantics

i’m losing at the word games
my heart doesn’t have the strength
as much as my mind lacks the capacity
to deal in any normal fashion
so i crumble

like old glue,
cracked and bittter
no longer consisting of
what you believed me to be.
