untitled (06/22/19)

he grabs my heart, clutching it as hard as he can.


his words stab every vessel, each cut deeper than the next.


"i thought it would go away."


me too.


but it hasn't.


and even as he twists the knife,


i am still memorizing


every feature on his face --


his eyes as blue as oceans i wish i could drown in,


his lashes as long as the silence between us,


his lips parting as slowly as we are.


still just as hopelessly in love with him 


as i always was


still just as hopelessly riding


on this never-ending rollercoaster.
