Nicknames for a Break-Up

A permanent goodbye.

A bed vacancy.

A new heartbeat fracture.

A first step in my twelve step plan to forget you.

An empty schedule decorated in erasure marks.

A staycation with sobs, ice cream, and horror movies.

A roulette of tear soaked voicemails.

An internal battle to message with intoxicated fingers.

Another promise to put in the broken pile.

A moment when every memory finds a home on my tongue.

A ghost that I haunt nightly.

A forgotten smile.

A window left open.
