You never realize how much you miss someone
until your heart sinks to the floor with grief
A soundless crash that mirrors
After months of forgetting how they mirrored asphalt after rain.
And how days seem to creak on by
When you’re in no rush to take a breath.
And how cigarettes taste youthful
a tremor of nostalgia; a secret childhood kiss
a breath of forgotten lust.
And how, with your legs propped up against the bench; our minds tightly shut
; the breeze spilled into the cracks of our words
And how my heart seemed to bleed through my lips
Your mind finally made up.
