Jumped Over the Moon (By Cat Matchuk)

You jumped over my heart to get to the moon,
during this leap you slipped.
I asked, how long?
you answered, soon,
to my heart so bruised and flipped.

Despite the big jump, I was there all the way,
not once did I dare leave your side.
When I had to jump,
you just wouldn’t stay,
soon you had left me behind.

You jumped over my heart to get to the moon,
you fumbled with my pulse.
I should have known
when you told me, soon,
that this love was truly false.
