Beautiful words


winter
days go by and silence has lengthened
the distance between us

spring
i tell myself that you'll be back,
befriending patience
once again

summer
i distract myself with books, losing
my mind in fictional lives and things
that won't remind me of you

fall
the lines in my books begin to blur with
your name, and i can't seem to shake
these new fears

winter
it's been a year and i do not allow
myself to think of you. i've drowned
in lovely things instead,
deciding that we were merely
a story i once read
