Soft eyes look back at me
Telling me without words
That I’ve let you down
We weren’t similar enough for you to matter
She looks at me in anticipation
Her eyes saying follow me
Then she dashes into her favourite place
Her tiny paws leaving tiny flaws in the snow
I wasn't born to do this.
I sacrificed a world
That I should have seen.
His kiss lingers
Still wet on my forehead
Yet a few seconds disappear and my heart begins to yearn
For his presence
I found that jacket today.
The one I always wore.
I wore it again,
Just so I could feel
I went to our place today
I should’ve known better.
For it shattered all that we created,
This is my aphorism; think small.
The bigger you get,
The worse it gets.
I won't be coming back this time.
You look so perfect as you sleep.
Maybe becuase that's when you can't hurt me.
That I would
Think this way.
A strong gasp.
An abnormally loud snort.
Wheezing, spluttering, heavy breathing.
