She forgotA girl met a boyMore Like This
and she loved him
more than the moonlight
more than a starry night.
More than the changing seasons
or oversized sweaters.
More than Polaroids or postcards.
Old type writers, or record players.
Concert tickets, or the highlighted text

and everything she'd made him into.
Her heart swelled as the day passed,

My sadness envelopes me instead of my blankets.
And my head is propped up
By a monster of thoughts
Rather than my pillows.
And the weight in my chest..
It feels as though the mattress is laying on me
rather than me laying on it..
And all I know through this confusion,
is when I sit up,
and take a look around me
The only person there..is me
And the only person who cares is me..
And the only person who understands...is me..

The Runaway Llama Badge
