i'm not very good at this


I refuse to direct my attention

to anything today.

I never remember your face

quite like I do right now.

I fall in love with you every time I see you;

I want to see you more.

I don’t mean I love you 

the way lovers share a bed,

but I love you much simpler.

Now I live what feels like countries away

(you know about this part)

how every time I miss you

I can feel my humanity


You are a beautiful creature,

your beauty defies you 

from humanity.

You don’t belong in the same category as me.

Because on a monumental scale,

you are a tidal wave

and I am the shore.

I know that when you kiss me

you will be ripped away;

until your next return,

keep the pebbles that i left.

if you could hold a burden,

you’ll promise not to forget.
