you wrote me love letters from the passenger seat,
pressing stars to my eyelids and hearts to my forehead.
you wrote me lies.

x

like the summer months, you never stick around long enough to make a lasting impression.
winter always takes over, cold
fingertips washing away all past evidence of the blistering friction once there.

(the only way I made it through was remembering that
you’re only another calendar away; that you’ll come back.
I don’t think I’ll make it through this time.)


o

I’d write you every word in the french-english dictionary if only one would spark a memory.
you seem unable to reminisce and incapable of nostalgia.
(really, I think they’re powers you passed onto me, increasing mine tenfold.)

x

you’re like something acidic, burning in my throat.
but all the way down, you’re smoldering the word
beautiful.

o

you held me close with trembling hands,
telling me how I was your living reincarnation of
rainbowsandfireworksandfairytales.

(I was the only one who noticed that they all just
explode in a shimmery mist of magic, forgotten
moments later.)

wow.
this created a knot somewhere in my stomach.

you found the perfect balance between things you told and things you left open for the reader's mind to fill in their own story.

I thought that was beautiful. I especially loved the first 2 "verses", before the first "o". It relates a lot to my current situation.
Also, *fave* :XD:

How do you do what you do?
It really is magical.

"you held me close with trembling hands,
telling me how I was your living reincarnation of
rainbowsandfireworksandfairytales.

(I was the only one who noticed that they all just
explode in a shimmery mist of magic, forgotten
moments later.)"

That's my favourite part... you always can create such amazing feelings with your words.

Wow. I like this.
A lot.

The best and worst part is the
contented bedtime giggle I'll
remember when I'm long dead.

and me either.
