it has been one year.
i look a lot older now, and
i feel aged. i am
the yellowed pages of
your memoirs, and
you are just another
dark ring around my
eyes.

you make me feel like
i really know nothing
at all, like everything
i was so sure of was
a glacier of untruths
begging to be melted by the
sun, by the truth, the
one i tried so hard
not to see, but
pierced into my shade
anyway.

i feel like i've forgotten,
and it hurts. i stretch
my body the wrong
way and i give myself
head rush and for a second,
my whole body goes limp
and i can't feel a thing,
as though i have
forgotten how to.
it's the most blissful i've
ever felt.

it has been one year. i
learned how to write
happier songs and my hair
is longer. a few realisations
have hit me hard in my belly
where laughter used to ring
from whenever we spoke,
and from where sobs would cascade
out of me whenever you breathed
away from me.

it has been one year and
sometimes i still cry.

it has been one year and
the only thing i really learned
was that it's better
to forget.
a year isn't so long when you think about it long enough.

Stunning. You really have a way with words. Time passes all too briefly for me.

You've captured a feeling I've tried to capture for so long perfectly!

eyes.


That, really, honestly, says it all.
