Love letter # 199
You used to seem like the sunshine, like the light pouring in. You were girl the song was about. You were the one.
I used to count down the hours, set the very time by you. I was the fool who knew the sacred sea. I was very nearly the one.
And we were almost perfect. If only those little cracks …
But the clock will not go back, no matter how hard I wish it. We are where we are – and you’re not here.
The truth is uncluttered – the bed is half cold.
Yet you still seem like starlight to me. That was the part I got to keep – and to this day it still makes the night time shine.
