Beautiful words

days go by and silence has lengthened
the distance between us

i tell myself that you'll be back,
befriending patience
once again

i distract myself with books, losing
my mind in fictional lives and things
that won't remind me of you

the lines in my books begin to blur with
your name, and i can't seem to shake
these new fears

it's been a year and i do not allow
myself to think of you. i've drowned
in lovely things instead,
deciding that we were merely
a story i once read
