i remember whispering ‘stay’ that night.
i knew you couldn’t hear me, but i felt like you could feel me breaking.
it was like when you said that sometimes you can feel me hugging you.
so i thought if i screamed ‘stay’ you would feel it in your bones.
and it would shatter you like you shattered me.
so that night i screamed through a dry throat and puffy eyes for you to stay.
i guess you didn’t hear me.
