"I love you. I love you. I send this message through my fingers and into his, up his arm and into his heart. Hear me. I love you. And I'm sorry to leave you." -Jenny Downham

You took her scissors
and hid them
under your deck,
but you
never did the same
for me and
turned my hospital visit
into a joke.

(I know I spent three months
away from you
but god damn
that wasn't your fault.

I was so scared in those days.
Maybe you were too.
I don't know,
you won't talk about it.)

It's two and a half years later
and some days
I still feel
like I'm the only one
a bridge that
both of us burnt down.

I spent three months holed up in my room because of my anxiety/depression and lost almost all of my friends. This piece is about those three months and the aftermath.
