You have left no land untouched.
Your screams of “Cooties!” silently play in my head as I saunter through this kindergarten classroom.
Your dribbling in these basketball courts create the same beat which my heart hoped to keep up with.
Your phone call from that one hospital on that one day God decided your dad’s pain could disappear in heaven.
12 years translated into eternity,
But soon, the “y” was dropped and memories transformed into ours.
Our sleepness nights gabbing about nonsense
Our silences saying more than words ever could
Our tight, perfect embraces while watching the rolling tides take away the sand
Our “good morning beautifuls” and “good night loves”
Our farewell hugs—oh, how I never wanted to let go.
Our laughs that pained my stomach
Our fights that pained my eyes.
5 months soon slipped out of our hands,
And here I stand…
Classmate to Best Friend to Boyfriend to the One I need to learn to let go of.
Where did we go wrong?
What mistakes am I guilty of?
When did you realize…?
No regrets here—it was for the best…
But I can’t lie- to the world, to you, to myself,
Yours, mine, ours—everything will stick for eternity.Posted in truth
