Love in Thoughts

January 14, 2009
By Callan Schafer, Chicago, IL

today You went away and i
think it was the last time.
i know You will forget
to think of me but i
refuse to return the favor.
i will ache for You
until Someone is brave enough
to stitch me back up.
but i don't know if or when
that will be
because You left me here

Pain You
never wanted me to feel
has revealed itself in the form of air
and it is suffocating me.
i thought you loved me
but i see I misread
the lines; You baited me, and then
You let me slip and now
i am sinking - a delicate chain
in deep murky water - and You
are the only one who can reel me out.
but You won't.
