five months ago i was weathered and worn
and sitting on my bathroom floor searching for pieces of myself
that i’d lost in the lover before you.
i swore i’d never give my heart
to anyone again
and my god i tried so hard
to keep that promise.
but those green eyes reminded me of spring
and that smile reminded me of light
and your laugh echoed ‘home’ with each and every gasp
and that’s when i knew i was in trouble.
