The Watermarks Across My Skin #22

Losing you only ever bothers me in night sweats. 

I wake up thinking of you,

Your careful patterns radiating in my mind and

Through me and my dream states. 

I cannot rationalize us any longer,

My mouth turns off but my brain leaps on. 

I remember our story like an old one we were told when we were kids,

Except the climax is different than I remember-

The issue has always been unwittingly the same:

You and your loyalty. 

You can’t blame yourself for the things you’ve lost and never (really, entirely) had.
