Eve: v

by eloisehendy

In the autumn I looked at you when your back was turned

You corrected my mistakes

In the winter my blushes burned

The frosted days were heated to fever pitch

We smoked in bed

Spring thaw brought no relief

You chased me across continents

(Was it me you were looking for?)

The summer brought us back to earth.

I read the Bell Jar and you ignored me for a fortnight

I cried for a three hour drive, with two songs on repeat

Autumn came, then winter,

Spring thaw, summer rain.

You were my constant inconsistency.

We said goodbye too many times.

I wrote so many things for you, that you will never read.
