my roommates are gone
Sam the cat is purring on the foot of my bed. purring so loud in his own cute, goofy way.
maybe I’m not completely alone, but I am….alone, nonetheless.
maybe somewhere in my room, he is there, watching over me. maybe when I get undressed he covers his eyes because we are still that naive, even when we are alone, I see us that way…
Young. Naive. Nervous.
we weren’t alone when we were together. I felt a world of courage just under our fingertips. just your name popping up on my phone screen, Little Reminders of You, were entire landscapes of love. I was never alone when you were around.
i am now. I am alone now. you are…wherever you are. I am just trying to get by.
I am alone now.
