| ||I'm going to be early.|
I'm going to be late.
I'm going to be picky.
I'm going to be careless.
I'm going to laugh.
I'm going to cry.
I'm going to talk too much.
I'm going to be too quiet.
I'm going to argue.
I'm going to be passive.
But don't forget, I'm going to do everything for you.
Because once you forget that,
you're forgetting what I'm about.
You're forgetting what I promised you the moment I said hello.
I will be there.
I will be there when you need me.
I will be there when you don't need me.
I will be there when you don't want me.
I will be there when you want me.
So for now I'm going to wait.
Because life is throwing me curve balls.
One by one they're taking their shape and every single one comes at a different speed.
We're drifting apart.
We're completely incomplete.
"Why don't you write then?"
"I just can't, not when I'm happy."
Time passed, and I stared at my hand for quite awhile.
How the skin reddened and flushed.
You got quiet when I spoke.
I could feel you breathing in every word I spoke.
Feeling it around your lips and concentrating on my pupils.
I could feel the way your feet shifted in order to open up your thoughts.
And as you slightly touched my wrist, I realize that humans can be so many things at once.
We can be vulnerable, hurt, angry, accepting, forgiving.
We can be human.
We can forget everything around us for just one person, if only that person called on us more than once.
But you let it go, and I let it be.
And when you told me at first, I wanted to cry.
Because now and forever we are permanently scarred.
And I love you, I just can't anymore.
So when you leave, look back and I'll pretend to look forward.
Regret and I'll pretend to forgive.
I'm glad you did it, I really am.
So let's just forget about each other.
Let's just do it to each other one more time.
