All of a sudden, you texted me. You texted me saying “Hey, just checking on you!” Why do you feel the need to check up on me when you’re the one who left me?

I know that it will seem like they have changed, like they have laid to rest everything your heart opposed. After all, they were your best friend. They loved life into you, art into you. They knotted memories to your collarbones, kissed light into your sadness. They were everything to you. They were your future, your safety.
