Can’t Believe

I can’t believe the way
she stiffened in his arms
gripped with yesterday’s regret
unable to let go

I can’t believe the way
she noticed small mistakes
wanting him to read her mind
unwilling to communicate

I can’t believe the way
she built those walls so tall
need for him tucked away
a weakness to let it show

I can’t believe the way
she yearned for his soft touch
lying silently on her pillow
afraid to let him know

I can’t believe the way
she knew for all those years
the woman in the mirror
could be happy if she chose

I can’t believe the way
that feels so long ago
