Nothing special lasts

Trace your white lies across my skin
Wonder will we see each other again
Or are we just cold storage
And stolen moments
Losing you

Text like the thinnest gruel
Compared to your wicked smile
And clumsy violence

Those moments when I held you tight
Etched as on glass
Forever bright
Forever painful as we part

Growing up

Be like a plant not an animal. Don’t move on, outgrow the place that was painful. This takes time but allows for the retaining of the past as a foundation for the future. You can never leave something behind that haunts you. It begins to manifest in ways you cannot anticipate. So while running can be a good thing, to keep yourself from further trauma,do not assume that by doing so you somehow have left the self behind. You’ll still need to deal with the effects, don’t keep running. You can never run so fast that what was cannot catch up.
