I was listening to Hard Feelings by Lorde and was inspired to write about the end of missing someone. Feedback is welcome as always :)

PROMPT: Beyond Reason

5
why do i cry when the sheets are cold?
loose tooth. sewing thread around a doorknob, angel straining against his leash
why do i itch under my skin?
the walls are thin and they are melting. quick, they say, move fast. he doesn't move at all
why do i forget what i'm trying to replace?
heartbreak slips out of hotel rooms when it thinks he's sleeping. he is a light sleeper.
is this what having a body feels like?
bury me. be gentle.
this is the sixth time he has tried to quit smoking.
