Never small talk, always big. You aren’t loud, but your presence is. Side by side and always in sync. Everyone swears you were made for me.
I felt it today, the distance I was so furious to be creating. It was dull and half-hearted, likely to leave bruises but no wound to bleed out of. I hoped it would be at least enough to make people wonder. That’s always been a toxic trait of mine, hasn’t it? People wonder, people talk,… Continue reading Word on the Streets
Just like the days pass in a blur, our time together turns to years. Once I cracked open to let you in, it’s been magic without worries or fears. Nobody gets me the way that you get me.
