Words

Some nights I lay awake, sleep in the distance.

I wonder if you’re still in love me, as you were before.

A foolish thought, no matter the answer.

You push me away, sometimes.

You try to protect me; you take such care.

Those words I used to say to you.

They live only in my mind now.

I know you don’t want them; this isn’t our time.

Every second I hold them in,

Feels like days of holding breath.

I love you. I am in love with you.

I don’t want to know a without you.

I miss hearing those words.

I still believe in someday.

I still believe in us.

Still.

Even without those words,

You make me me.

I hope I make you you,

Still.
