I read this bit that I wrote about being so happy last May and how my "newest favorite conversationalist" made me "feel validated". It's strange because I always know what's going to happen next (my June journal self knew too), but I never find the thing to do to stop the other shoe from dropping. What's that word for when something happens only because you feel it'll happen? Maybe it's that... maybe it's not.
Forget the shoes, I'd prefer to be barefoot.
And to be alone* is breathing solo,
An exhale without an in,
A deflated heart and an empty hand-
For you, I'd stay.
For me, you left.
*alone meaning lonely
