People always say that it hurts at night
and apparently screaming into your pillow at 3am
is the romantic equivalent of being heartbroken.

But sometimes
it’s 9am on a tuesday morning
and you’re standing at the kitchen bench waiting for the toast to pop up

And the smell of dusty sunlight and earl gray tea makes you miss them so much
you don’t know what to do with your hands.

this is everything to me.

have you ever fallen in love with someone immediately but known in the same instance that you cannot love them right now? they are a love that you don’t want to waste with an age of questioning and experimentation. 

i want to love you, but not right now.

that i could once and for all

be someone that would leave you

lying awake at night 

scheming of ways 

to be someone

i would wake up

and miss
