Chapters of Us

I want to love you better.
Instead I will sign my name
to the words I have thrown
and the endings you have
written without me,
and maybe that will last
longer than this cold
and dark aching that breaks
along my spine each time
we begin another chapter of us,
because no one says
I love you quite as beautifully
as the way you don’t.

  1. As someone already said, nailed it. The poem brings forth cold aloneness like nothing I’ve read in a long while. btw, I love your tagline, “Some people have moodswings, I have an entire theme park” and I wish I’d thought of it. It really is a great description of the “joys” of being bi-polar.
