"you have sad eyes"
is what you told me, that night when our bodies were tangled loosely.
was my reply as I pulled back, undoing the tangle of our legs and arms
"you just, always seem sad."
you said, as you broke my heart,
"we're worlds apart"
was my soft sad reply.
"we're in the same orbit"
you said with a hopeful gleam in your eye as you gripped my shoulders.
"I know, I'm just scared, that one day, you'll leave me, just as the others did, and will."
I shake my head softly, shaking, lip trembling.
I say softly.
"Well, can't I be the one that fixes you?"
You said that I looked sad.
