it hurts sometimes

it hurts sometimes, you know?
feeling like you’ve been left behind.
the words are floating around
but you’re not sure how to make them rhyme.
the fountains are shut off for the winter
its cold outside and the pipes will freeze
the water’s there but nobody else is
it happens every time they leave.
that emptiness is really filling
like a meal eaten much too fast
bloated feelings that hum and linger
the food on the table never seems to last.
it hurts sometimes and never stops
it only goes away for a short while
but it always comes back around again
thinking it’ll change is just denial.
