i forgot no one

ever owned you

so hold on to

giving your eyes away.

you still read him love poems

still holding to the hope that one day

he’ll listen to you how the faces of the moon

can unravel you.

how its unseen side is hidden in beauty.

and how the side that reflects the lost sun

will light your way back.

but this poem is not about that.

its about why you keep giving

something that you never had in the first place.

its such a great deal of loss because

i have the first class seat

watching you as you break again and again.
