I'm still not entirely happy with this poem, but I'm sick of it at this point so I just decided to publish it.
The title comes from the song "Some Nights" by Fun.
at the long ties of love
I wonder what we even meant to you.
Did you ever dream of the nights and mornings
our hearts could have had?
Because sometimes I would catch you looking
like you were dreaming of some other life.
And sometimes you would turn your head
when I went to kiss your lips.
And other times your hand would slip out of mine
when you thought I wouldn’t notice.
And some nights I cried myself to sleep
because I was scared of losing you
And then when you walked away
and left me in tatters
I wonder again
if my love ever meant anything to you.
