It’s a tee. It’s a dress. It’s the new Graphic T-shirt Dress.

nearly

almost a love song
for almost a love
one that fell short
was over before it began
the promise was there
so were the hopes
but something
was never quite
just the right fit

trying to shape it
form it and make it
into something
it wasn’t
didn’t help
but hurt and cut
until bitter words
fell like tears
on deaf hearts

a beginning to
what was a
lingering death
no flowers
no ribbons
on its grave
only salted earth
and stony ground
no marker

to say

once there was
the spark of love
until
we
killed
it.
