We were quiet, but my thoughts were loud.
The sound of your name,
the rhythm of your heart,
echoed into the crevices of my mind and I knew

and I wanted you to.

Looking back on our time together, I should’ve known my purpose for meeting you was to learn how to lose you. Our relationship was too careless, too exhilarating, too consuming to control.
