kissing the fragments / of loneliness

March 18, 2021



p l e a s e

i never thought i could miss you
yet my heart clenches, begging for you
salty tears stinging the metaphorical wound
your absence has caused me

the ghost of our entwined hands
haunts me while i try to rest
in the bed where you used to sleep
the cold outline of your figure long gone
what i'd give for even a glimpse of you

i. kissing the fragments / of silence

    getting "happiness" vibes (taylor swift) from this... heartbreaking and anguished and cold and numb and perfectly conveying emotions

    Wow! This is super deep and beautifully well-written! The last line was so haunting but a beautiful way of wording it, "the cold outline of your figure long gone" It's so eays to picture! Amazing!
