After X number of goodbyes
some consensual, most from effects of Time
You realized not all who step into your life will stay
so you act like they’re all leaving one day
Thinking that drifting is how it is
such that you are the one distancing
I wish I am brave enough to text you, stand closer to you, kiss you more – even when I’m absolutely convinced you’ll eventually disappear from my life. Why can’t I summon more courage to persuade you to not leave?
