Thinking of you

Thinking of you

creates this tension behind my eyes, this
frown, so evident, upon my mouth.

like I'm about to break -
but I so rarely do.

I want to break. I want to shatter,
so I can start again

with the pieces that are leftover.

I want to let go, I can't stay here
and watch you
and wait for you.

Thinking of you

is longing, in its purest form.
at its greatest and most pathetic

because I know you don't feel the same
"and that's okay".
