I can’t remember what it was like
lying in dark spaces with you,
having you whisper my name.
You used to be so close, too close,
your breath on my skin.
I never thought I would miss it,
never thought I would get the chance,
but now even after all these years,
I still wake up reaching for you.
Now my name on your tongue
sounds like all the years I missed out on,
like promises made and promises undone.
Now it’s all so clear, too clear,
I can’t see anything but you,
never could see anything but you.
Even after all this time,
I still think of dark spaces,
I still think about you.
