Written by Jacob Ibrag

I keep reading the last text you sent, pretending that

there’s more to come after the last word of the last sentence.

‘Can’t wait for us to share a last name. I’ll be by you soon, a moment

before the suns rays pour onto your skin.’ I keep reading the last text

you sent, pretending you’re still in my world and not the next.

  3. I really love the sense of loss and grief that you managed to capture within the poem. It is relatable to many people and that captivating aspect is really what brings the piece together and makes it come full circle. I really like it.
