when i taste salt i think of you.
i remember when we were in the sea and
you kissed me so hard i thought you were trying
to rearrange my ribs and tie my heart strings in knots.
i remember staying up late and eating popcorn and talking
about life and death and everything in between and you told me
that maybe life wasn’t for you.
i remember tasting salt but this time it came from my eyes
and breathing hurt and i wondered
"was it like this for you?"
except it wasn’t because
you can drown in the sea
but you can’t drown in tears
"shoot for the moon"
set your targets high and you won’t be disappointed.
well i’ve got news for you because the last
time i did that i missed the stars and i
fell past the sun and not even the earth was there to catch me.
well you’re the only person i know
who can shoot the moon -
dead-on, right in one,
ready, aim, bullseye.
and as i lie on the ground and look up at those very same stars,
i wonder why you hit me
for the first time in weeks
i’ve found myself smiling;
i’m happier than i have been
for seven months.
i’ve found myself laughing with the sunrise
and dancing round my room in the middle of the night.
and i’ve come to the only plausible conclusion:
it’s because you’re no longer here
to drag me down.
ohgosh this is incredible! I’ve only been writing for a few months, and I don’t know if you noticed but I took a month of two break because of work - I’m thinking of writing some more now :)
maybe in the future I will, who knows - thank you so much! x
oh, thank you so much! this is lovely x
you’re amazing - thank you x
