The Hanahaki Disease is an illness born from one-sided love, where the patient throws up and coughs up flower petals when they suffer from one-sided love. The infection can be removed through surgery, but the feelings disappear along with the petals.
Tell me where to package
Your mouth and your teeth
your eyes and your heart and
your god damn collarbones
They’re not sure where to go anymore
And the smile I had just for you?
The one I kept for 2 am
With the lights off
in your bed
Where do I put that?
Do I tuck it under my bed in a box
Labeled do not touch for fear
of lighting a match
I won’t be able to put out again?
Or do I rip it into pieces like paper
And let it fly out the window
And the “I love you”
The “I can’t believe I get to wake up
next to you”
The “I missed you today did you miss me too?”
Do I tuck them under my lashes
For when the pain becomes
too much to bear
And shed them out with the tears?
Tell me where you put the love so quickly
Give me somewhere to put everything
you gave up on
So that I can look like I’m good
at living without you,
