i’ve compared them all to you

desperately trying to find the happiness you once

wrapped around my neck.

as i sit in empty bookstores sifting through crappy novels

i watched troubled strangers inhale through sticks of nicotine

while smoke danced through their anxious lungs.

no, you have no clue how much i miss

the taste of everything you are

the mornings when you’d let me know just how much you loved me.

i even miss the lines that creased your forehead 

when i coughed out something you didn’t like.

there are reasons we didn’t make it

and at times i can’t accept that

even if it’s been this long.

i want to rid you of my mind, the spaces in between my fingers

the warmth on my side, the wants in my ear

the scar on my right knee, and the burning in my chest.

for someone who barely thinks of me

you’re all i can’t forget.
