How Do I Go Back?

Aaron Lee

How do I go back from the sense
of your fingers on my spine
to someone else’s?
is there a going back?
will it be all too familiar if I do?

How do I go back from drowning
to floating in love?
will it be less volatile this time?
or will it still shake and shudder

How do I go back from
wanting to discarding the parts of
me that you’ve touched?
is this a nightmare I’ll
wake up from?
or will it be a new dawn? Thought Catalog Logo Mark
