that long-distance relationships
do not exist.
that love doesn't care if it's three
feet apart or three thousand
miles between.
I suppose, you'll never be close enough
to the person you love.
maybe it's true.

strangely,
the feelings of emptiness
are quite heavy.

I elbowed the universe
when I saw it flirting
with you as if I wasn’t
also capable of
sunrises and waterfalls.
These shifting continents
tried to pull you away
so with these hands of purpose
I began shifting the stars
to draft love letters
left above for all to see that
I can outworld this earth,
our sun and
the relentless seas
all asking to touch your skin
just as much as
I.

it was 4am when
i noticed his text.
“are you up?” he asked.
rubbing my eyes, i answered,
“yeah. need to talk?”
because anyone who is awake
at 4am is either heartbroken
or in love.
and i am very, very
heartbroken.

i’m so sorry
that no one saw the dangers
of a sleeping sixteen-year-old
being kissed by strangers.
-s.r.w.

here, we do not talk about the mistakes.
we do not bring them to the light,
we let them sit inside our dark places,
let them fester and rot; eventually,
we let them **** us.
it’s only a matter of time, you see.
but we never speak of them.
the truth is this:
you cannot give with one hand,
and take with the other.

i walked in,
found him laying on the floor
wearing jeans and a sweater,
and he was shivering.
it was July.
i never understood anything
until that moment
