just because our minds form the same opinions that have been torn apart by others, because we see the same shapes dancing on our eyelids in the dark just because we see each other reflected in every movement and just because our irregular hearts beat in sync does not mean we are soulmates

so much

i pride myself on the ability to let you move at your own pace let you breathe in your own air let you find comfort in me (when you’re ready) but missing you while you’re standing right in front of me hurts


your glances fly past me without so much as grazing my skin i know you’re aiming for me but you just can’t sink your shot
