when i held you i held my tongue first.

when i was inside you, the universe clicked.

i could see it going either way

in every direction—never have i ever been so scared before

 

& after the glow left me blind to what we almost had.

i never wanted to make you so sad.

all i want is for you to smile at the small things.

something big is in store for you—i could read it in the sparkles on your teeth.

 

as for me, well . . .
