Fourteen Years

from by O' God the White Whale



When was the last time I felt your presence around mine? Where have you been? Have you ever been here? Kiss my dragonfly, love me like you used to, You’ve lost your fruit and your promises.

Leaving me with your leaflessness. How can you convince yourself that you’re not at fault here? I shouldn’t have clung to your branches and told myself that this would work it never has and it never could.

Just say you don’t love me anymore, end it with a clean cut. I know you hate me, there’s nothing I can do about that. “People should live their lives for themselves,” that’s what you always said. So, you lived your life and got what you wanted, you ruined mine.

And I can’t believe after fourteen years, you still don’t recognize me.

Open your eyes, be here with me for fucking once. Can’t you see your wife has made herself beautiful just for you? (Can't you see she's been waiting for you all this time?) I’m sick of saying sorry, I love you, you say it this time. Names move past our window, your train leaves at nine and I’m not enough to miss it.
