There’s like a million different ways to say “I love you”
“put your seat belt on”
“watch your step”
“get some rest”
…you just gotta listen"
You were the most beautiful creature
the way you laid in bed
with your hair against my pillow sheets;
touching me like you knew me,
smiling as if you didn’t have a care in the world.
There was a wall between us.
A space despite how you held
our bodies together like glue.
Truth is, we’re just a bunch of lonely people,
sad souls bumping into each other,
using each other in an attempt to forget
all the people who have broken us.
I can still taste her name on your lips
and I can tell I don’t taste
half as good as she does but still
I was drawn to you,
a hiding place inside your arms
like two moths finding warmth
in the coldness of my bedroom
(I think we both needed this).
You kissed winter into my mouth
and at once I knew I wasn’t empty
despite the months I thought I’d lost
the summer in my blood, fearing I’d
never be touched by another body.
Your heart beat against my chest
almost as fast as mine did so I
allowed the snow in your voice
to melt onto my skin.
You kissed my hair and
got out of bed like nothing happened,
but I smiled because you knew
all my terrible secrets
yet you still stayed and looked at me

I AM ACTUALLY CRYING OVER THIS
So am I
and that’s why you don’t go around fixing people
and that’s why you don’t give up pieces of yourself to make someone else whole
We do this more than we think. Sometimes we reject those who have helped us the most. Other times, we help those who allow their egos to hide their humilities.
