for once in my lifetime just let me feel more

BEDSHEETS

by redactedlitany

she came around home one day,

then left and never came back;

maybe it's cause i told her i loved her

maybe it's cause i said it the wrong way

maybe it's cause i wasn't supposed to love

maybe it's cause i had nothing else to say

"i love you, i love you, i love you,"

spilling from the lips that she kissed, once,

when she was still whole and

my heart was still putty clay

when her skin wasn't broken glass

when i didn't have to ask her to stay

and, you know, i think

that she loved me, too,

looking at where she used to lay;

she told me not to miss her.

i still think of her every day.
