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.
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
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.
