Road Not Taken (January day 11)

i miss all the decisions i didn’t make

and i still kind of want to know the color of your eyes

every day you wake up without me


there is a song that gets me through so many days

and i wrote out all the lyrics in a message to you

still unsent


because how am i supposed to get through days

and not come home asking you to hold me

how am i supposed to have something to celebrate

and not have you be the first one i tell


call me crazy when the lights go out

i send the stars some letters but they will never reach you

I paint my wishes on your walls with glow in the dark paint-

it’s still not enough

you never turn the lights off
