Everything is endless when you look at it long enough.

We describe endless as something that has no set time to stop,

something infinite.

And the word infinite sends a shiver down my spine.

Infinite means forever, 

and I know that I'll never be infinite.

I will be a hollow piece of splintered bone sitting amongst the words I never got to say,

and the love I never got to feel,

and the ideas I never felt that I could share.

And I've always been afraid of being left behind,

and I know that eventually infinity will continue and I'll still be lying in the

tree roots as they trace my past mistakes up my forearms and

try to tie together the shattered bits of heart.

And if infinty takes that little piece of me,

well I don't want to be remembered for that.

I don't want to be an infinite idea of what you made me,

of what you caused me to become,

because now I'm nothing more then a fragile bottle of sea water.

I have a seal that will never break because I let you in and then you turned my water bitter.

I'm not proud of the bitter taste against the lips,

but I'm not proud of the sweet taste you left against mine.

I am made of a glass that is seethrough because you made me see the worst in myself.

I'm not proud of my flaws, even the ones that only I see,

but I'm not proud of the countless ones you pointed out.

I am made of something breakable because you tore me down to the bare skeleton of a smashed heart.

I'm not proud of the way that I can shatter if you look at me too hard,

but I'm not proud of the way you wiped away my strength with a single touch.

So please, 

infinty,

if your still waiting for me,

just go be endless and leave me in the dust of memories,

because all I am anymore is what he built of me, 

and I don't want to be an endless broken heart.
