my girlfriend broke up with me.

she says she is scared to hurt me.
afraid I will get too close
but she said she couldn’t be in a relationship right now

her parents are making her pay for rent.
she is 16
I am hurting for her

I can see her childhood going
she is getting a second job to pay rent to her family
they are not poor

she is assembling documents and researching emancipation

I cant do anything

I can see her falling apart

she is seeing this guy.
they have a

thing


we used to climb the buildings downtown and look at the city.
spray paint roofs and run from suburban police
we were stupid depressed teens

arguing over who would be the first to die

when I look at her now I know I will outlast her
