You see, memories are a fake reason to smile at awkward times
Or maybe cry
But they are there, even when you are not
I tried writing a love poem the other day
I tried to talk about how there was no actual event that made the towers of my mind collapse into a white stream of screams and uprooted butterflies
How we actually started out not so much as friends as strangers
About how the first day I said hi at the cafeteria, it was to tell you to excuse me so I could order my food
And we had a fight, and I laughed because the way your face crumpled when you frowned was the funniest thing ever
I tried writing a love poem the other day
And I cringed; my pearl necklace was exchanged for a noose
It occurred to me you'd be leaving me, very soon, whether you admit it or not
Heartbreaks are what I've already gotten used to
And all I would have of you, would be fake reasons to smile
All we would have of each other, would be these not so sweet breathtaking memories
All we would have of each other...
