The Place I Dreamt Of: Beside You

3 am was my favorite time.
It’s time where we’d use to talk all night
It was 3 pm for you.
Still, you’d always make things worth it.
I’d always lack sleep,
You’d always complain about the roosters,
and the dogs,
and just laugh them out.
You told me you wished you lived closer to me,
So you could touch me
I wished that too.
I still do.
So I could touch your face,
wipe your tears,
as I tell you good bye
because you’re not good enough for me,
and the one more than good enough and brave enough
to tear down my walls
is here.
The love I had for you is now his,
my heart is his,
yet, my soul, my broken soul,
is still yours.
I’m still building it up,
because he deserves it.
I wish of a place close to you,
so I could atleast see you smile,
while you try your best to live,
just once.

        A beautifully written poem, Nat. It was powerful and packed with emotion. Love is a crazy thing. Sometimes it can make you feel like your floating on a cloud, and other times it can feel like a sucker punch to the gut. Stay safe and take care.
