I am not a writer, I am just trying not to fall in love.
So I write the words that will bleed out your name and hope it would be enough to silence the echo of your voice inside the cracks of my chest.
I am not a writer, but I want to remember.
So I write about the day I met you, forever encrypting the numbers in my mind. Repeated in whispers inside my head.
I am not a writer, but I want to understand.
So I write about your expressions, how rarely they come and go. I write about your ghosts, hoping she would haunt you no more.
I am not a writer, but you make me want to be.
So I write about you, and it is the saddest story you will (n)ever read.
