And he

I can’t be the only one

thinking that any moment can be life defying

and constantly preparing myself for that,

but never being prepared for the let down

for the fact that life just goes on as usual

for the fact that his smile had no hidden messages

and that the voice outside your window won’t be his.

For the fact that to him, you weren’t even worth a thought.

 

And he

he was infinitely beautiful

and you didn’t want to wait for his story drop by drop

you wanted it all to be poured out on you at once

and finally drown in all the parts that make up what he is

and he

he just wanted to break an awkward silence

he just wanted to test out a new joke

he just wanted to pass some time.

 

Ordinary life is the slow death of a romantic.
