three other people

i hadn’t felt that
sting in the chest when someone
inadvertently breaks your heart.
and now it feels like
sinking below normal pressure
in twenty six degrees below zero
i have experienced so many physical emotions
and they don’t compare
to the way one word
can break your heart
it’s between you and a ghost.
ghosts can be funny and they can be flattering.
you can break my heart as
easily as you can leave a trail of kisses down my spine.
