it isn't what we left behind
that breaks me
it's what we could've built together
had we stayed.

there's a difference between telling
someone you love them, rather than to show
that person you love them.

i get that you placed all of you on my mind
before reaching for my waist
my hips
or my lips in my dreams
he didn't call me beautiful at first
he called me
exquisite.

its the sight of you that has been tatted in my brain
the intimate an intriguing parts of you that last the longest constantly
Ricocheting in my mind
over and
over
never have you left
never will you leave.
