[289] Present as Past

As time goes on
Your spoken sentences
break and find haven in
my mind as singular words
Your whole body language
turns to quirks as
i become a blank canvas in
the presence of you

When i’m not beside you
i spot stars like you did
I count them all like you did
I call them to burn down but you didn’t
because they are still parts of me you didn’t see
They are still parts of me
that i hid in the spaces between
