Three good days and then you're gone.

Three days of cuddling, talking, and sweet silence of my mind.

Three days and then you go quiet and scared.

You run.

But I don't know why.

You never tell me why, but then again maybe you do.

Maybe you tell me that you give me space for myself. 

But maybe you are just too scared to say that the space is for you.

Do you need the space?

Do you need the space to figure us out?

To figure you out?

When we are together we smile all night.

When the sun comes up and 10 am rolls around I'm out the door, saying “have a good day” to you.

You tell me I'm your favorite person. 

That you can feel and be who you really are with eaze.

You tell me that you like me so much, and I laugh and say I really like you too.

Then you say “no i'm serious.” 

And I repeat those words back to you because so am I.

But then the three days come around, and we're back to ignoring me.

Why do you do this to us?

Why ignore me if you miss me?

Why be childish when you are so grown up beyond your years in everything else?

The past is in your head whispering lies about me.

I am not your old girlfriend.

I am not your past.

But you let it eat at you.

I've never dated, I have no past to eat away at me.

So I am not understanding how you are held back by a ghost.

How does it get in your head and tell you I'm just like them?

When you look me in the eyes and I tell you I'm not.

I just don't get why.

I want to understand.

But for some reason I can't talk about it.

For some reason we ignore it like you do me.

Three days.

Three lovely days.

Followed by two days of dying inside.

Of being dramatic and wishing you would just answer me.

Of being petty and not texting you AGAIN!

Last night.

This morning.

And nothing.

Should I have to do that?
Is this how relationships work?

You texting the person over and over again till they answer?

We aren’t even in a relationship really.

Are we?

We aren’t ...because you're scared.

I don’t know what we are.

So I never know what is appropriate.

I never know what i'm supposed to do.

You say do it all.

But I only get to get as close to you as you allow.

But I guess i am the same way.

There is lots of stuff you don’t know about me.

I don’t like to talk about myself.

I don’t really know how to get close.

I've never allowed it before.

But I want that now.

I want that, but how?

How am I to do that and learn if I only get three days of being in your arms?
