Waking up and finding you gone, I sit and ponder on the thing about goodbyes.

I make myself a hot cup of my favourite flavoured tea. The void. The empty space. Piercing loneliness. What is this thing about goodbyes?

I find your t-shirt in my laundry. The smell. The intoxicating smell. Will I ever get to smell you again?

I look around and find you everywhere. I look around again and I find you gone.

Scanning through my Polaroid pictures, I find our favourite one. That face. When do I get to see you again?

Lying on my back and relaxing with my daily dose of nicotine, I ponder again.

What is this thing about goodbyes?

—  /reg// I hope to see you again

Monday 8:27am
I woke up with you on my mind.
You called me babe last night —
my heart is still pounding.

Tuesday 10:53pm
Today I realized we won’t work.
What we are is hurting her.
And I think she matters more to me than you do.

Wednesday 11:52pm
I broke things off with you today.
She barely said a word.
I’ve never regretted anything more than this.

Thursday 4:03pm
I shouldn’t have sent that message.
You shouldn’t have been so okay with receiving it.

Friday 9:57pm
I almost messaged you today.
I didn’t.

Saturday 8:49pm
I’m walking around town in search of alcohol.
They say that liquor numbs the pain of having a broken heart.
I want to put that to the test.

Sunday 2:32am
I heard you texted a girl you’ve never spoken to before.
I wonder if it’s because you’re trying to replace me.
I can’t help but wish you weren’t.
I thought I was irreplaceable.
