atlas

you snatched the smile out of her eyes
pocketed it and called it loose change
her happiness was something you took for granted
thought it was something you could play around with

you are undeserving of all that she is
and all that she can be
you’re the weight on her shoulders,
the one she declared her world
you kept her grounded
when she was worth more than the earth you stepped on

you pull her down when all she wanted
was to lift you high up
when she fell from the burden you placed on her
you hesitated to catch her
said gravity was at fault
for all that you put her through

give the change to someone
more worthy of all that she is
and all that she can be
the one who won’t prevent her
from reaching the skies with the tips of her fingers

she deserves more than the world
she deserves the universe
