I miss you;

words are cheap but there’s
not much left to say that will
resonate with the coldness
in these arms.

I love you feels unfinished and
embarrassing. three words leave
my cheeks flushed and my heart

empty; my bed, my arms, my heart.
where are you?

I do not eat cauliflower or things with faces; I believe in the darkness in inanimate objects and I refuse to cry. I cannot find myself in mirrors and I fear the nights as much as I avoid mornings. I fell in love with a boy who brought me a world of words and an idea that broken can still be…

A lot has changed in the last two years, but this still feels like an accurate description of me. That’s sad.

I wonder if I’ll know when you
die. If I’ll feel it rip through my
chest or if I’ll not even miss
a beat,

maybe I’ll drown for months in
my tears and maybe,

I’ll go on with my life.

If only I could fall out
of love with you in an

who you are is not who
I know,

you are spilt milk and water
already down the drain; you
are tears no longer worth

do you remember when you 
you talked of love, of hope 

and reaching the stars hand 
in hand? 

it’s time to rest our heads 
darling, because i can’t 
rest when i miss you like this

and maybe our dreams are 
the only place left.

I whisper that I love you in crowded
rooms, I shout that I don’t in
empty hallways.

this heart is made of glass and
I’ve lost it to a magician.

I’ve never felt as lonely as
I do when I’m lost in the rain,

never as free when I’m drenched
with sorrow to the bone, through
to my marrow.

I can cry in the rain, and promise
the world that I won’t love anything
else again.

I can cry in the rain.

honey, you’re better off loving
that boy from a far because
you will never win with a boy
that won’t follow his heart.

I’m so sorry that you miss him
baby, but he wasn’t brave,

he wasn’t a forest to keep you
burning, but an ocean that
put you out.

I’m so sorry baby, you need an
adventurer, an explorer, a traveller
to take you places but he was
a heart without a compass.

I’m so sorry baby.

we’ll start our day with tea and toast in bed, you’ll laugh at me, but still put two and a half sugars in my tea. You’ll sigh as I avoid the crusts, even when you butter all the way to the edges. I wriggle from the crumbs in the bed and you’ll complain about all of the animals on the pillows. I’ll put music on and we’ll dance around the kitchen, one of us will stub our toe and the other will blow a kiss to make it better but then we’ll slow dance before we remember that it’s a tuesday and we’re late for work. 

maybe we’ll walk to the station together. maybe we’ll hold hands and swing our arms even when it’s raining. maybe we’ll be shouting because your mother wants to meet us for dinner and i’m certain that she hates me, maybe we’ll part at the front door as i run for one train and you run for another. 

you might have left a note in my lunchbox, you might just be making fun of my childish bag or maybe you’ll say i love you for the first time. maybe you’ll email me to ask how my day is going and that you wish we could run away to the coast this weekend. 

you’ll dance with me in the kitchen and hold my hand whilst we sleep, you’ll brush your teeth whilst I shower and talk to me when I’m in the bath. you won’t be annoyed (mostly), when my cats are invasive or when the lint roller has run out. you’ll shake your head when my dog has been nibbling on your bag or shoelaces. you’ll love me, you’ll love me, you’ll love me. 

dear future lover, i don’t want much but you. i don’t want perfect, just content, just co-existence, just love.

I think I’ve been in love with
you, for all this time,

I’m sorry, I think I love you.

he whispers these words and
I stare at my hands, at my feet,
at the sky,

I don’t believe you.
