i waited patiently for you today, though i knew you wouldn’t come, in our old spot on my porch swing. the night air caressed my skin as i swung back and forth, gazing at the absent seat next to me where you so often sat close, talking endlessly as the stars appeared.
the streetlamp illuminated the road we used to walk, too scared to hold hands, too nervous to touch. my mind followed our ancient path down to the end of the road and back laughing without a care in the world. so i waited for you, though you never showed, because i cannot be forgiven for breaking your heart so long ago.
