she never said

she said that
she loved me
to the moon and back and
to the moon and
back just got a 
whole lot shorter

your roundtrip gave me
the bends as

you closed the portal and
swept this sobbing
as love choked gasping
on yet another
tripping dream


she never said that
what she said
didn't mean a thing
