That summer day when I left you,
I forgot to say that
You have given me the greatest treasure
One that made drowning--the images floating
in my lungs, gargling saltwater,
silence filling the deep blue--worth it

The electricity between our fingers, remember?
Electrons moved, but came--finally--to rest,
Untouched, and,

Perchance, what makes the flowers bloom
Is not the bees' dance but the sun's kisses
And the water, watching softly
The thirsty blossoms

Time is patient, and so are you.

It is spring again.
"Resembling, 'mid the torture of the scene,
Love watching madness with unalterable mien."
-Lord Byron (qtd. from "An
 Unquiet Mind" by Kay Redfield Jamison)

I wondered at the meaning of my existence
But you just stayed nearby without saying anything and gave me happiness"
-"Days ~Aijou to Nichijou~"

Sometimes, the greatest gift one can give is the gift not given.

Thank you, my friend, for never touching me. I was thirsty, and my heart was parched. You stayed by my side, watching patiently, just like how I watched you facing the darkness. 

We were both drowning. And yet, the flowers are blooming, and here we are.
