your body a sponge
soaking her up like sunshine
as the stars hung through your teeth like christmas lights

you only recognize my words when she plays them back
different names on the tip of your tongue
i was never sorry i lost sleep over you,
lost
loving you like you were leaving,
obsessed with being
yours handing over
my roots.

if only the stars looped around the two of us.

you once told me that you loved me
because you just wanted to know that someone could-
you found comfort in it
but,
i can no longer recognize
the alignment of a face
even the constellations envy

•i have to apologize for my inactivity.i have not been taking proper care of myself + i find myself slowly loosing interest in the things i used to care about.•
