My chest hurts
More specifically, my heart.
I can't forget about it.
I can't get it off my mind.
I can't get him off my mind.

The way he quoted Coldplay;
How he said he'll try and fix me.

He said the only was he'll let me leave this world is by his side.

The way he said he felt a physical punch in the stomach when I told him I wanted to disappear forever

How he said he wants to get a sharp stick and poke every guy who's ever hurt me.

The way he calls me perfect.

The way he tells me he loves me.
"I love you, Brianna" with a smile.

The way he called me his Persephone and said he'll give me all the pomegranates I can eat.

I miss him.
I think of why he left.
He said he was moving to Jersey.
That was two weeks ago...
He never responded to my email.

I love him.
I long for his words.
The way he makes my face tense into a smile.
The way he makes my cheeks burn with a blush.

I wish I could tell him this.
So I did.

No response.
