What happens when the love you’d cross oceans for becomes the reason you want to drown in it?
And it’s not his eyes, which’ve deceived you. Which seemed like stars were bottled and shining with his irises. His smile seemed like moon’s crescent had been put between his lips.
But most importantly, his mind was the most beautiful thing ever, with galaxies in his mind and thoughts like stars, which fathomed into perfect constellations.
Because when I met you, flowers started growing in the darkest parts and corners of my mind.
But only if I could grow these kinds of flowers in my backyard.
The deepest,darkest corners of my mind wouldn’t be filled with these scorched flowers,dust,webs of forgotten dreams and promises we used to keep.
These are the corners I no longer visit. The walls of my soul are covered in the words I will never have the courage to speak.
