Normal words i wish i had said
killingthought “my heart is beating quicker than it’s supposed to
and I don’t think I can stay in the same room as
you without falling from my skin
and I’m falling falling 
and my heart just hit the ground and the rest of me
is spilling out
and this was supposed to be a poem about love
and the way you make me feel like I’m wrapped in
outer space, warm under a blanket of stars, like 
I’m safe 
but I’m burning alive and stars aren’t as pretty 
when they’re hot in your throat 
and you loved me you loved me last night but that 
was 16 hours ago and 16 hours doesn’t seem like
enough time to fall out of love
but it is
and 16 hours doesn’t seem like enough time to 
fix yourself 
because it’s not
so I think I’ll stay here in the dark for awhile
because the sky is pitch-black without the stars
and we fell asleep in love
and I’m the only one who woke up
and I’ve been shaking you
and you won’t hold my hand like I need you to
and I miss you 
I miss you
and I bet that when she kisses you 
she can’t taste the little cracks in your
chest or the reasons you won’t call your
father back 
like I do
I fucking do
and I see the entire world in you
and all you see in me is a black hole
and you used to like the way I laughed
and the way I tuck my hair behind my 
ear when I’m nervous
but that was 16 hours ago 42s
