I finally found the foundation I thought I’ve lost at your grandmother’s house during the summer,
It was where you told me it was,
Inside my luggage indeed.
Along with many other things that I haven’t seen in a while such as
My guitar pick,
My hoodie really.
My hair brush,
My seashells from Revere beach,
And a bunch of pictures from us that I never wanted to throw away and I never will.
I put them all in a drawer next to my bed,
The drawer closest to my head,
The drawer that I never open because there is a valentines day card turned upside down,
I refuse to see the massage.
- Dear friend,
I haven’t called you in a while and I’m sorry I disappeared,
I don’t want to bring you down with my depression,
I just don’t think I should add anything else to your plate,
And I’m sorry if I did.
I think I made a mistake,
And I need your help,
But I don’t want your help,
Because I don’t deserve it.
I hid the keys from my drawer and I forgot where I put them.
Now I don’t have access to my most valuable items,
They’re not lost,
I never lost them,
I never threw them away,
And never will,
I just can’t reach them.
I can’t reach to you either,
- Dear guy that follows me on Instagram,
Your pictures really attract me,
I know that beautiful things can start with just one like,
So I liked all your pictures,
And you liked all mines back,
Is this going somewhere?
Should I slide to through the DMs
A simple "hello?"
A concerning “How are you?”
A heartbreaking “Hey”
A disappointing “I’m sorry”
And that’s why I never wrote back,
And never answered the calls,
And made sure that you knew that I wasn’t going to,
And I didn’t
But now I am.
- Dear stranger,
I love how we vibed for the shortest
And I think that’s a sign for us to vibe longer.
Wanna hang some time?
And if you don’t want to that’s fine,
I get it…
I don’t get it.
I want to hang out with you,
I want to be with you,
I want to be able to like your pictures and not feel that I’m annoying you,
And I want to be able to feel something beautiful when you upload a new picture.
Instead of feeling a sinking hole form right in the middle of my rib cage
Swallowing my heart and my bones,
Feeling that they're poking my lungs,
And ripping them apart.
I can’t breath because you’re gone,
You’re not the guy that follows me on instagram anymore,
So I can’t call you that,
And you don’t want me to reach out to you,
And I want your help,
And just your help,
Because you’re the cause of my mistake.
I can’t call you a friend,
Because friends don’t let other friends cry on their own,
And they’re not cold when they go to the hospital for attempted suicide,
They’re not cold when they beg them to not hang up the phone,
They’re just not cold.
And you are,
And it’s my fault.
- Dear stranger,
I found the keys to my drawer.
I’ll send you back your hoodie.
