too little too late
it used to feel so absolutely suffocating
to reflect on a time when i didn’t love you
to think of all the wasted moments before
i was graced with your presence in my world
but now it burns to remember the feelings
of falling asleep in your arms,
of crying into your chest,
of kissing you goodbye.
i was never one who even believed in love
so it took me a couple of tries to realize
just how real it all was
of course, just when i got comfortable
things fell hard, and everything went south.
and now every time i hear, read, or say your name
all i’m left with afterwards is a bitter taste in my mouth.
