“Can I see your I.D.”
I roll my eyes internally, and sometimes outwardly, when asked that question.
“I am 25 going on 26, can’t you tell!”
But this post isn’t about how young lookin’ I am on the outside and how young actin’ I be on the inside.
missing you is
crawling on my
skin — one
every part of me
you once touched.
There are a billion little things
and maybe a thousand heartbreaks
many i don’t remember
but my heart knows.
On nights like this
i feel heavy and light
it’s in the way i miss you
knowing logic has no pulse.
