if only I had known

You will hold out your fingers like an apology, like your

palms ask for love so

desperately, and you will still feel the pain

throbbing in the lines on your skin but

they will hold their heart out to you on their

lips and it will taste like strawberry ice cream with

the essence of everything  you’ve

ever wanted and

their smile will spill over with promises and

you will trace “I love you”s in the dark where

no one can see

you

but

one day you will wake

up and see the surface, your

body barely underwater –

and they will be

at the

bottom

of the lake.
