Constantly

It’s tiring
being here
next to them
opposite.
It’s hard
trying to speak
when nobody
really listen.
It’s more likely
to be invisible
when you don’t care
they don’t.
It’s impossible
to care
being there
opposite them.
It’s here
when you are
on my mind
constantly.

Thought

I want to remember your smile
when you looked at me
it’s all I have.
It doesn’t matter if
I imagined you or not.
I don’t need many people
don’t need many talks
You were the only one
I could’ve been with.
It doesn’t matter if
I wanted that or not.
You haven’t left me anything
but speculation.
It drives me crazy
the thought about you.
That I won’t
speak to you anymore.
That we won’t
meet again
the universe between us.
That I won’t
tell you all the things
I wanted to tell you.
Can’t stop thinking
about ‘what if’
Can’t stop crying
on what I could’ve had
Can’t stop imagining
us.

Lonely souls

So close
so far away
to each other.
So close
in the same place
so far away
separated by a wall.
Cannot see
each other.
Cannot smile
to each other.
Cannot speak
to each other.
So close
but thick bricks
between them.
So far away
but connected
in their minds.
Two
lonely
souls
