I try and line myself on the edge of my bed
to keep your thoughts at bay, but you
make an appearance in my dreams anyway.
I try to pack up your thoughts in my jewelry box
but I want to wear my favorite earrings anyway, everyday.
I try to convince myself that I love winter, but you are my sun
and it rose every morning anyway. I did everything I could
to forget you, but the outline of your lips resembled the petals
of the flowers that I held and kissed everyday.
Some thoughts, you just can’t push them away.
