Your depression shows when you talk about home.
You said: “I can’t wait to leave this town and go away on my own”.
And the thought of it shakes all my bones,
in this weak body I used to own.
I can’t do this alone.
I don’t want to be
your entire world, no.
I would be happy
just to be your morning coffee,
your hanging car keys,
but if lost throws off
your entire day.
eyebrows can literally either make you or break you
For my sixteenth birthday you took me out to a surprise dinner in Little Italy. You had our friends meet us at Blue Fig after, as another surprise. Even though I fell asleep with my feet dangling off the couch dressed in the moccasins I thought I’d never have, it was the best day.
Whenever someone pushes their bottom lip out, like I used to, I still hear you say “scoom baby” and it makes me happy and insanely mad at the same time.
