i can’t remember a time before i wasn’t caught in the pearly whites of your canines, or an era when i wasn’t perforated apart by your cannonballs, shot down by the bullets of the glistening emeralds you call your eyes.
i can’t remember a time when my poems wasn't dedicated to memorising every detail of your raven eyelashes curving to the sky, or how the warmth of your palms transcend the coldness i tolerated in my heart.
i can’t remember a time when i didn’t have something to lose, and i think that started when your honey-lidded gaze fall on me in the middle of a crowded room with too much sound, but i can still hear the ‘i love you’.
i can’t remember a time when you used to be static -pure background noise, irrelevant, unnoticed after all, doesn’t it drive you crazy how much someone could mean to you? at first, they’re a whisper in the dark and suddenly-
