The truth is,
I won’t miss you when you’re gone;
Don’t get me wrong, I miss you, more than I thought it possible to miss something, but,
As strange as it may sound,
I miss you most when I’m with you.
When we’re together, and your dull, lifeless eyes, devoid of the fiery passion they once held,
Struggle to look at me.
When your voice fills my ears, a straight tone,
No longer quivering with joy in my presence.
When your words lose meaning,
and your grip loosens,
your hands no longer lovingly squeezing mine,
this is when I miss you most.
When this thing that we’ve become reminds me of
what we once were,
and forces me to realize;
You’re already gone
When in distress, every thing is a metaphor for the one thing that causes one distress. This is natural. Inhale. Life is a crafted thing and the tool for shaping that thing is the will. Exhale.
A kind of wick or snuff that will abate it,
And nothing is at a like goodness still,
For goodness, growing to a plurisy,
Dies in his own too much. ❞
— William Shakespeare, Hamlet (4.7.114-18)
I’ll be honest, I don’t quite hate you, but I’m pretty fucking close to it.
I really do hope you think of me still. And I hope every sweet word I fed you lingers in that fucked up head of yours. And I hope I’m an everlasting craving of yours. And I hope my name slips out your mouth when you’re fucking that poor girl you tricked into being with you for forever. And I hope it rains on your wedding day and the drops wash away that fake ass smile of yours so that who you REALLY are is left standing at the altar for all to see.
And once you realize what a fuck up you are, let me be your choice rope, and let me be the one presiding over your funeral, and let me be the dirt smothering you.
You are THE only thing I regret.

I lunar you
you cumulus me
you high tide me
I transparent you
you twilight me
you empty castle
and maze me
and parabola me
and vertical me
you oblique me
I breathe you
night and day I breathe you
I mouth you
I palate you I tooth and claw you
vulva and eyelid you
I breath you
blood you neck you
I calves you I certain you
I cheek and vein you
I hands you
I sail you
I shadow you I body and ghost you
I retina you in my breath
you iris yourself…
