I can’t keep giving you this favor you asked for.
I can’t keep this promise I made to you.
I’m breaking everything.
I’m shattering glass,
I’m tearing down walls,
And I am unapologetic.
I didn’t mean for it to escalate this far,
But then again,
Here we are.
I can’t keep this promise,
My skin just wants to break free.
I can’t keep giving you this favor,
My skin just wants to be against yours.
I am ripping your poems to shreds,
I am slashing tires to your sweet ride,
I am breaking the gazes between us.
I am unafraid.
I can't keep loving you,
This stupid schoolgirl crush.
I am walking over our memories,
Crushing the seeds you grew in me.
I am destroying the thought of you,
I am rendering love identical with night.
Tears don't stain my eyes,
Neither does pain.
So don't act surprised.
I am dancing again,
I am singing once more,
And I am not in love.
I am the moon once more,
I am the sun again,
And you aren't the stars.
You aren't the reason.
You aren't my rhyme.
You aren't a poem,
Let alone mine.
You're just a shell of a man that I once loved.
Even then, you're still empty.
Even the moon must go through phases of feeling empty to become whole
