Weighing In

"Weighing In" - 9/1/15

I wonder sometimes, how often you think of me
tears fall shamelessly, sublime reminders of my frailty
and music is no help in moments where silence is
the only sound I can muster pressed against your absence

the loudest thing in my life right now
is a voice I imagine you use to tell yourself continuously
why you should not be with me anymore (presumably)
I wish I could kiss you just once since I took for granted

so much and listened only half-heartedly
to your stories without endings witnessed your games
without payoffs oh G-d what I'd give to hear you ramble

touch your cheek precious testament to everything that matters
