Invisible scars where your fingers once touched me
Your long hair draped over those grey eyes
Even when closed the intense stare was burned in my brain.
We were f u c k ed darling,
Long bony fingers gripped my hand so tightly it’s as if you thought I would slip away
Baby, I didn’t.
It was you.
Your love kept me up all night,
Every sensation was electrifying
And you’re nails dug in
It hurt, but the right kind,
The pain I so desperately needed to keep this real
And then one night you slipped your heart in my hand as I was sleeping,
Baby, where did you go?
What did I do to make you leave?
Now the only things I have are memories.
And as time slithers by
You get hazier,
I’m forgetting, love.
