Written by Jacob Ibrag
Each day escapes him, lips untouched
by her kiss. He tours through the alley
way, praying for an accident. ‘Take me
out of this existence, transplant my soul
within her distance.’ Provoking the walls
with bloody punches, begging to crumble.
He wallows into his apartment, frustrated.
Knowing she’s on the plane that carries
her further away from his cold body.
Replaying voicemail’s, staring at empty
photo frames. What was, what could’ve
been. He let her go, she wanted to
stay. ‘I pushed her heart away.’
