Text 22 Sep 4 notes the slowest form of death

when we go out,
you use your phone
a little more often
than you used to

when we stay in,
you hold my hand
a little less tightly
than i’m used to

but that’s okay,
i think,
because relationships
are peaks and valleys

and that’s okay,
i thought,
because you can’t be
in love all the time

except, i am
in love all the time,
so this uncertainty with you
is breaking my heart

but i still choose to stay,
surviving on morsels and memories
of what we had,
because i’m not done loving you yet

when you experience loss,

i wish that i could, too,

just so i’d have something to say

unsatisfied by the sun, 

God spoke the moon

into existence, too. 

and that is precisely how i

choose to have you,

both your light and your gloom. 

i refuse to love one,

without the other.

Text 16 Sep 3 notes lucky us

we have no future together, 

and we know this.

but love does not depend on hope,

in order to survive.

love is completely self-sustaining,

so it will not wither,

even though we beg for it to die

loving you is just like breathing,
even when the air is not sincere

if i had three wishes,

i’d wish to love you today,

and i’d wish to love you tomorrow,

and i’d have no use for the third

In the dark, there was a

sullenness that seemed to be

etched into her face.

But a single ray of moonlight

pierced her countenance,

and from its wound flowed peace,

pure and unapologetic.
