Craving

Tick

Tock

Tick

Tock

I try not to think about them

Tick

Tock

Tick

Tock

But they hover over my shoulder

Tick

Tock

They’re visible from the corner of my eye

Tick

Waiting for me to turn back

Tock

Waiting for me to fall

T i c k–

Time stops when I’m with them

It’s three in the morning

We lay curled in my bed

And I’m almost in their arms again

They whisper

Reminiscing about the past

Reminding me of our time together

As if I need reminding

As if we hadn’t been one for so long

As if the guilt of giving in doesn’t still haunt me

Tick

It’s 4 AM

I feel their breath on my shoulder

Tock

It’s 5 AM

And they are still here

Tick

It’s 6 AM

And I’m too tired to pay attention to them anymore

Tock

I wake up

It’s 9 AM

And they are nowhere to be seen

I release a breath I don’t even realize I’m holding

Relief washes through me

I made it.


Thank you again if you chose to listen or even just read this piece. I want to explore other options beyond just writing and I hope you’ll join me as I figure this out.

Until next time x
