People get drunk
They hook up with the wrong person
And pretend to be okay
People act tough
And get mad
People will do anything to distract their heart.
They will do anything to distract it from missing someone.
I just want.
the air you savoured on the 10th
the words that left and entered lips simultaneously
the touch that sent shivers and heart beats
to the tips of toes and heads to the skies
the scrunched faces as eyes met
covering looks that hid nothing
words that we wept for in private
and joyous tears, i just want.
so much and so soon
so fast and so doomed
left to latch, clasp and clammer to what i can
holding on, in love.
Words are my safety net
Woven with simple regrets
Simple white lies
Hiding behind downturned eyes
Self, me, I , not enough
For that touch
Obliged to offer more
Give more, be more than I can
Content with the idea of being
Still, silent, speechless
Enough to earn the movement of her lips
Instead, I move her heart, my heart
As I break the egg shells
Leaving bitter bruises
Behind my back
On her our soul
I created cracks”
