It felt as though someone was ripping my heart
-straight out of my chest.
Every single night.
Only to haphazardly put it back.
Always in the wrong way.
Just a long sleep
This is nothing more than a very long slumber;
Wake me lovingly when you get here.
Tell me tales of all the times that I missed.
Wake me when you get here;
We will continue as though it were yesterday.
I thought I would outgrow you.
I have outgrown everything.
Except for you.
