Where you are

I am glad,
that you’re far away
and smiling;
comfortable inside your own
precariously arranged space
of perfect
while I’m here
rotting.
I am glad
that you can’t feel me anymore
even when looking
at the night sky,
though I’m tearing apart
at every intersecting vein
for one glimpse of a star-
I swear my brain
won’t stop throbbing
from the pressure.

I can’t seem to blink this away,
and my bad dreams
feel like they’re plastered on tv
in the exact moment I wake,
because I’m so in love
with your voice
in the wind
and your skin
in the sun,
but I can only see
when my eyes are closed.

Don’t you know you deserve the best?
I couldn’t make things last…
and I don’t think you know
how I’ve died since;
pondering the grains
of sand in time
I wish I could change
but it’s okay darling,
cause there are more than miles now,
and though I’m far from alright,
you’ll never hear
how this heart is breaking,
you’ll never see
my fingers shaking,
you’ll only every hear
that I am glad.

Where you are
