Text I Never Sent

I miss you

Placeholder for a degree of helplessness

My heart’s smeared red like hertz

Presageful, have I gazed upon these.

Reminiscing about our moments under the stars with euphoria,

Moving on with ersatz smiles

Salvaging the situation

Incurring bloodless cuts

This obsession with peace of mind

Avoiding me?

I’m not the Loch-Ness, desolate in mind

If you could rewind time, what would you change in it?

Love, what do I think to say, I can’t

I was marinated

Who have you become to ask?

I want all the pain

For believing

In our language of boundlessness

The tentative nature of situations

Cause I wasn’t infatuated

If this is restitution for giving you my heart

I want all of it.
