Insomnia might loosen its terror on my body if your fabric grazed on me.

Sometimes when I stare out my window and watch the fireflies hit the water, I know.

I know why you left that morning.

Something had changed, we both noticed our pain as you unzipped your old suitcase.

I hid your ID just so you couldn’t leave I wanted you to stay and stealing your stuff was just a simple part of it.

Even if some stuff I stole was nothing you'd miss i'd miss it, just as I would miss you.

When you left my heart I knew not what to say except sit in your old t-shirt I stole and linger at the smell of you.

Go back to watching the fireflies.

And wish I could drown in the water just as they do
