16.11.2018 – an original poem

16.11.2018

I look at you and remember

all the memories we shared

all the lame jokes

our stupid car rides together

 

the stupid little things in life

— except they’re no longer stupid

because i did those things

with you

and yet,

you hurt me

but darling, at one point

you gave me the world

the stars, the moon, the sky–

the entire universe

and i ruined it

i ruined us

 

now you’re gone

 i can’t do anything

cause i messed it all up

and all i’ll ever be to you is a long, lost, damaged memory suppressed within

so here i am,

and i look at you and remember

-a.a
