the night isn't quite black
but it isn't blue either.
it's a grey purgatory between the two,
light enough that we can see stars
and trembling deer and our hands
in front of our faces,
but dark enough that i can't
see the tremble in your lips
when you ask how many people i've cheated on you with.

/      /     /

we're in a park at 8:06 pm
and i thought you invited me here
so we could listen
to the running water
and the grasshoppers
that survived the winter
but i was wrong.

my heart is a playground after dusk,
a place where children used to play
but it's so quiet now.

maybe that's why you left.


/     /      /

two days ago we made plans to move out
of our parents' houses and into a shitty,
two-story escape in cincinnati.

tonight i sit at the top of a slide
and you tell me you could never live with me.
i ask you if it's because
you couldn't stand to look into a fucking mirror.

you laugh and shrug it off.

you always do.

/     /      /

you drive me home
one last time,
sighing through the long stretch,
the drive so brand-new
in the wake of 2 years pulled apart
at the seams.

it is as if you
have never driven me home before,
every streetlight and traffic sign
a fresh stroke of thick paint
on the canvas of our last day in love.

cupid's chokehold is on the radio
and i'm back on the swingset
2 hours ago
where i told you stories
about my old home
i'll never tell you again.


/     /      /

i slink down the slide,
stumbling onto new ground.



i come down.
find someone else to serenade you naked at 2 AM
the soundtrack of my heart is "the end of all things" by panic at the disco
Loading...
it's as if the town
has been dipped in hell
and pulled out by its hair,
not exactly screaming
but with a tired groan.
i take off my glasses at the curb
and all the lights go soft
and smudged
a trail of amber
glowing behind
like a quiet afterthought
