There’s Nothing Here 

I know that in this car wreck we call a relationship 

I’m just the collateral damage 

I’m the tree you ran into when you swerved left

You missed the doe and hurt me instead 

Struck yourself on my branches 

Now we’re both left to bleed 

Why couldn’t you just have been careful? 

Looked where you were going? 

I don’t understand why you weren’t more mindful 

I don’t understand why you never cared 

Am I worth that little to you? 
Am I that mundane? 

That worthless? 

I thought for a moment I could believe the lies you told me 

I thought you believed them too 

Now we’re here 

Broken and bent 

Impaled and hurt and folded against one another 

Next time I hope you keep your car on the road 

I wish you would have driven by and left me 

where I was in the forest
