a long days night -
my bedsheets are knotted around my shivering skin
there are heartbeats in the walls and
heartbreaks in cracked blinds, windows cracked open eyelashes
tangled shut
i melt into memories of you i dont dare wish out loud 
im not supposed to love you anymore, in daylight
you are just fleeting thoughts : but
in silent, holy nights my heart is a liar and
these hands are honest ones
 
they reach for lingering heat i imagined and fall
empty with longing, i felt what might have been your smile
once
or twice -
but i always come back empty-handed

i remember you told me i tasted like cigarettes, a teasing smile as if you could tell i only smoked for the aesthetic of it
you bring out the worst in me

this reads so nicely & it's so well spun and it's basically just every definition of gorgeous! i love your imagery (as usual) & though i sense the bittersweet vibe this just feels like comfort to me <3
