an ode to strangers


i’ll miss you
like the dozens
of meteor showers
i missed.

i’m not sure when,
but i’ll see you again.

tell me i will.
please.

"

the taxi cab’s out front
and your bags are in the doorway
but you are still in the kitchen
drinking milk straight from the box
like you don’t know I hate it when you do that

I know you’re going to leave
you wouldn’t have kissed me on the
forehead when you thought I was asleep
if you’re going, why are you still here?

vampires need permission before
they are able to enter a house

what do you call someone who so
badly wants to leave but still itches to
ask if he can when the obvious reply is,
“no, don’t go?”

"

—i’m not going to beg

tinktastichana:

For after all,
the best thing one can do
when it is raining
is let it rain.


— Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
