I don’t sleep any more, barely even eat. This pain inside me is so deep.
I try to silence them and they’re louder.
Try to muffle them and they’re sour.
Once we even ran away.
They wanted to take me to another place.
Of course I disobeyed.
I saw your face and I knew you were mine.
Those almond cut eyes and v-cut chin.
You even had that rounded mouth with those tight corners on the end.
Something just wasn’t right,
I tried to breathe back in.
You pulled away and told me you must go.
I didn’t even get your name.
Guess I’ll never know.
Now all I can do is wonder.
