Adolescent: i

I loved you for years and you loved me

For two nights,

Five months apart.

I was awkward and silent and screamed your name against the lids of my eyes

I scratched unsaid things against my wrist with my writing hand

You kissed me when I left in the morning.

I was unwell for some time after that.
