There are memories attached to these words, and feelings attached to these memories. I remember being in that lot, on the incline side, for a walk and you explaining what that word meant. I close my eyes, I can see you. I listen hard enough, I can hear you. I can only assume that life has cheated me and and I’ve sold myself short. I could not possibly imagine anything worse than mulling over a future diverged on a different path. Daydreaming about a life not yet lived and that I will never live. I never lost anyone, because I have never loved anyone. And that changed when I met you. both birds dead, same stone. I feel the world falling apart, and mine fading. You give me meaning. I find it to be both beautiful and terrifying. The most beautiful ghost I never seen. Your love should be illegeal Because when you left I felt like I was dying. I hope they take you in for homicide. All that’s left to do now is entertain myself with old memories. I feel like I may have did this human thing all wrong. Sometimes I just stare at pictures of your face. My favorite love story is ours. Even if it never gets reproduced into hundreds of copies, or passed on from one generation to the next, or made into a movie, I know, that what we have is better than Casablanca, The Notebook, or anything Disney could ever trademark. It’s mine. Before I’d dance with the idea that I’ll never be shit. But now I hold you close in my head hoping the music never stops. The highest high I’ve ever felt, came from our union and separation. I hope the residual of our love lives another lifetime with either your last name or mine. I get upset wondering how things went from wishing you were here, to wishing you the best. I watched happiness come, and I watched it go. But this time when it walked away, I didnt know it would be that beautiful. There’s a lot more that goes into loving you than I could ever put into words. So when you go, don’t forget to take my love with you. I won’t be needing it. I know I could never feel how I feel about you for someone else.
