i meant to ask all those years ago, but the words never left their place deep in my chest; where you used to keep all your secrets and lock them away until you found a new hiding place.
and i meant to ask you if she keeps them as well as i did?
and when you hold her is it closer to a perfect fit?
and how did you know that i wasn’t the one? cause i’m still left in the place where we’d just begun, oh. leave me be.
