i think you must know
i don’t know how you couldn’t.
i’m trying to stay away from you for
ten
more
seconds
counting down in my mind so i
don’t
look
desperate
but you reach out before the sand in the hourglass is gone.

after weeks,
months,
of building my own four walls brick by brick
you knocked it down like a sandcastle
and we built a fortress together.

with you
i forgot
what i used to be sad about

i’m starting to find my left hand boring
i keep doodling
imagining something lining the knuckle on my fourth finger;
how about you?

you were taken away from me,
not in the worst way;
but in the way that left me alone
with long nights and empty days
waiting for your phone call.

time zones aren’t the same as time travel
sleep comes easily to the strong

who do you blame if no one’s in the wrong
but it’s all you can do just to get along?

every  brick of our fortress,
our castle
was pushed down
and i don’t think we can rebuilt it
with sticks from the ground.
