You must prove
Beyond reasonable doubt
That this love will not break me
And ruin me
And take twenty one new songs on my phone
And make them unplayable
For the next three months
Innocent until proven guilty
And friendship until proven crushed,
We walk invisible line
Like fishing twines
Like we are carp
Waiting to be scooped into the net
At a moment’s notice.
How can things be so easy
And yet imply the most difficult things of all?
I miss you before you even leave
And yet I dread the very moments we spend together.
