166: Open Book

She used to be an open book, so when I went to turn the newest page, it was blank. New pages were continually added to her book, but they were always blank. Some of the older content was also slowly becoming invisible.

She used to be an open book, but then she turned on the highest privacy settings.

165: Message

Dear You,

Whoever this message is addressed to, you appear faceless, formless and nameless to strangers, but your face, frame and identity burns the brightest in my mind.

No one has it all, least of all you. I haven’t seen you in a long time. I wonder how you are, if you are happy. Occasionally I will think of our memories together, but I don’t feel anything afterwards. You remain only a lingering cobweb inside the dark recesses of my mind.

I’m not nearly drunk enough on the dead of night for deep stuff.

2.38 am
Angsty all over again
I miss my loves
I remember you in dreams

Dragging my finger across your lips
Embracing you, our hearts beating erratically
Ah, the dangers of teenage love
I was so close to forgetting it all

I miss being with you
I don’t see you anymore
I don’t even know who I’m addressing
As I talk, many faces flit past

The boy from junior school,
The boy from senior school,
The boy from wherever
You’re all the same to me

A faceless, formless, forlorn body
