autumn. you nearly died, for him.


and the night you have a lump on your throat

when the air becomes too thick to breath,

and your chest too heavy 

to carry you, or your heart

is troubled, because he 

didn't say he loves you, back. 

You will convince yourself 

it's your fault. 

that you're unlovable. Yet, 

You will want to tell him that you need a savior. 

he will never understand. 

He has never tried to die

for anything.
