you're going to miss me.

when the night is silent and you can't hear anything but the beatbeatbeating of your heart against your ribcage, you're going to remember me. you're going to remember how my voice dropped to smoke when i was tired. the way i hesitated before diving, trembling even as i grabbed your hand and pulled us over the edge. the way i blushed and bit my lip, the way i tried to filter what i was going to say but always ended up saying it regardless.

and when the moon whitewashes your walls, you're going to think of me. you're going to think of the way i stood in the middle of the highway watching you leave. the way i looked in the rearview mirror bathed in your taillights. the way i wasn't crying, just rocked on my heels with fists jammed in my pockets. the way i never begged but opened the front door, the way i knew love tasted best when seasoned without expectations.

and when the stars dance between your curtains, you're going to wish for me. you're going to wish for soft kisses blooming around teeth biting your lower lip. for nervous smiles trailing behind greedy hands. for mischievous eyes as i lead you into madness, into incoherent, bubbling insanity. you're going to wish for time-stopping, heart-racing freedom, for our hearts galloping against one another, for steamed windows and silver-lined laughter shaking the walls.

when comets burn out in the galaxy, you're going to miss me.
but i'm already going to be gone.
{"well she was precious like a flower
she grew wild, wild but innocent
a perfect prayer in a desperate hour
she was everything beautiful and different
stupid boy, you can't fence that in
stupid boy, it's like holdin' back the wind"
--keith urban

This burows in me so deep it almost hurts... And it's after you read things like this you're happy for that iceburg even though you're freezing your ass off in arctic waters, and the ice is colder... It's nights like these when you're happy it's there.

I hope you're alright with whatever is under your skin.

I don't even have the words to say how much I love this piece.

"you're going to wish for time-stopping, heart-racing freedom, for our hearts galloping against one another, for steamed windows and silver-lined laughter shaking the walls."

I think that amazing tid-bit of writing might just get my point across. Simply awe inspiring. :heart:

i'm diggin' the subtle '...so there >:]' quality of this. the spite in it is mild enough to be cunning without being whiny or angered. it just flows and tells it like it is. looooooovelovelove. <3

This is both beautiful and painful.
And it hits me hard, because it is word for word, an outline of how I am currently feeling in both ways.
Thank you for writing this.
You have a stunning way with words.

I've dreamed of this. I dream and pray that one day he'll think about me, because I want to at least be worth a memory.

I know it's cliche to say this, but you have worded something that i've been dealing with....so incredibly well.

I don't know what to say, other than that i've found relief that it's not just me.

keep up the words, they're magic, deary.
