typewritten words

i can sit here and pretend
like I didn’t notice you
plotting your escape
hours ago
days ago
months ago
in all your little hesitations
and the way you build your walls
as if you never laid
a single brick
i can sit here and pretend
like i didn’t watch you
sealing yourself away
hours ago
days ago
months ago

but i did.

Two souls are sometimes created together and in love before they’re born. -F Scott Fitzgerald


    i am earnestly upset
   might even write about it
      i didn’t pick up because I could

                 Possibly explain
   I am having an allergic reaction
           I DO NOT BELONG

                    CALL NOW

Real life.

Where names are not preceded by @ symbols, and showing emotion goes deeper than choosing a yellow face with a corresponding expression, and pressing ‘send’.

Where conversations are longer than 140 characters, and people touch each other with hands and mouths and skin, instead of typewritten words proclaiming how much they wish they could. Where laughter has a sound.

Real life. Unedited. Unfiltered.

I hope to meet you there someday.
