Skye Jan 21
In between the lines
My emotions, carefully masked away
Just look harder, see the hidden signs—
A sharp inhalation, elation cut short,
Of fragmented words and meaningless phrases,
Like our goodbyes;
Obscured mistruths you hide in your sleeve
Actually read it in between the lines (odd). Then do it again (even). Now read it as a whole. Idk...

          I am lying
On my side
          And lying,
Whispering to myself
          But you’re over there.
I’m inhaling,
          Not here
Your absence
          By my side
Read the italics by itself, read the non-italics by itself, then read everything all together. Kinda makes sense...
