to the person who's looking after her

 
 
 
 
because  
i think about  
this shit sometimes
when i'm laying  
in the dark
watching the moon
passover
hoping she's not  
wandering
around  
alone
 
 
i hope you know  
her favourite album
is plans by
death cab for cutie
especially track  
number two
she never failed to
sing the lyrics
back to front  
no matter what
mood she
found herself  
buried  
in
 
i hope you know  
to read her favourite book
which was delta of venus
by anaïs nin
not because it was sexy
but she liked  
the awkward looks
strangers gave
when she would read it
in private
she found comfort  
in her desires  
being heard  
and read  
aloud  
 
i hope you know
how to make her tea
early in the morning
which is strong
semi-skimmed milk  
two sugars  
even though  
i argued over feeling  
she was sweet  
enough
if it's a bad morning
i hope you
understand  
it's going to be black
one lemon  
without any sugar
to match  
the bitterness
she often felt  
waking
up
 
and
despite  
how it all  
ended
i do think  
about  
her
 
i often
ask myself
how many people  
are out  
there right
now  
 
laying  
in the dark
just as i
do  
 
trying  
desperately
to scratch  
a glorious face
out
