As I walked home beneath the copper glow
of the street lights
hearing the moths slam themselves
against the glass
I finally realised the difference between
what it is to be in love
and what it is to love someone
they are different
and along with that
a little later on
I realised that
to love someone at any point in time
means that they will always
mean something to you
I like to be strong
and not show the effect someone has on me
and although I don’t love him
and haven’t loved him for a long time
he will always mean something to me
a part of my history if you might
peep under my ribcage and
care to look in the archives of my heart
