Shadows and Afterglows

I knew it by your words that you

Wanted us to fake it until we made it,

But I’m sorry that my eyes failed to pretend

To be normal or banal in front of your friends.

I’m sorry that I couldn’t redact words

Before placing my true emotions forward.

I’m sorry to have spilled the beans,

I’m sorry by all means,

For thinking that even if we

Missed the sunrise together

After an overnight argument,

We’d still be perfectly patched

Before the sun went down and

Be two lovers watching the sunset,

When really, I was just expected to be

An existential part present in the

Shadows and afterglows.
