Tied

maybe i should leave this place, too
and forget all about you

drive off into the mountains
’til the rain erases you from my skin

been tied to my bed
trying to get what’s left of you
back inside me

can’t eat
can’t sleep

going crazy
rehearsing maybes and what-ifs
in my head ’til it hurts

three notes
trade them for a secret
your kiss, your touch

reaching into empty space
every morning
drowning and hyperventilating
in every breath

said leave,

until you looked back

said goodbye,

when i wanted to say don’t go

said “you did,”

when i meant “i’m sorry”
