Patience Takes It's Toll

I asked this girl
typically, casually

of her romance situation lately

she replied she'd stopped one
and assumed another with someone I knew

and like a bird into a glass window
sadness into my heart flew

for this girl had as casually
as I asked this once kissed me

and I've not let slip from my memory
that picture, which brings me

near a tear as I sit and stare into space
from my car across the road

with a take away coffee, that tastes strong & bitter
like my hope

Middles of sentences are the best, for they leave the reader to acquire their own true ending. Or for that matter, their own beginning..

other people waiting

we're not strangers anymore
