on awakening from a dream where we were still one; Haley Hendrick (s-k-e-t-c-h-e-d)
No, I don’t think you understand. When you
told me you didn’t love me anymore, it felt
as if I was sitting in the front seat of an airplane
as it crash-landed. My bones broke and swayed
and my eyes could have been mistaken for
a low-key version of Niagara Falls. I longed to
drown in the puddle I made that day.
Now, I still don’t see how you so easily walked
away when I tried to give you the goddamn sky.
I tried so hard to be your sun and all you
did was wish for rain.
