It's not that I'm ghosting or avoiding you,

I don't want a confrontation, 

before you speak,

I've predicted what you've said,

And so,

I am running away from the future,

I am running back to the past,

when the words are confirmed,

and they leave your lips,

and reach my ears,

It's official,

And so,

I am running from the Official Goodbye,

I feel it coming closer,

Sooner or later,

the words are bound to catch up to me,

for now I will retreat,

to the familiar memories of us,

to your Saturday morning voice,

and your intelligent brown eyes,

to the taste of warm coffee,

and the touch of your soft lips,

I will live in our happy memories,

I will replay them over and over again,

until my mind tires,

and my eyes weary,

before my tears seep,

and my soul weeps,

and searches for you,

I will live in our memories,

All of them,

of our escape games and safe haven under your 

blanket within each other we found,

of the walks beside you and the invisible wings 

you never realized I saw,

of 3 am showers and buzzy energy drinks,

of walks after dinner and the scent of alcohol,

So please.

Don't say the words yet,

allow me to find comfort in the past.

I have full knowledge of the future ahead.

allow me to painfully reminisce,

in nostalgia and photographic memory,

until I miss you,

until it is unbearable,

until the tears are unmaintainable,

and the sadness grows and drowns me,

then you can make it official,

and our memories will leave me.

And So Will  You

- Officially.
