Love Poem for an Ex-Girlfriend

Kisses in the bath, my stomach flat against your back;
Evenings where I’d hold you till the world outside went black.
Smiles that conveyed far more than words could ever tell;
Confidence you’d catch me if I dared to fly and fell.

Glances cast between us only we could understand;
Moments where the whole world changed because you touched my hand;
Two hearts joined so close as one, we’d wonder which was which:
These are things I never had with you, you fucking bitch.

—Max Nussenbaum
