Sleeping with eyes wide open

I ruined a good thing

Why am I not surprised?
I am used to getting sleepless waiting for your messages
– when I get lucky, your voice
Now I am just sleepless –  staring at your inbox
– but don’t have the guts, the strength to actually open and read it.
‘coz instead of remembering the warmth it gave me
All I get is a hard-icy reminder of what could have been.

As the dark circles begin to creep my eyes
All I’m left are remnants of a life now far different from this.

theuglywriter is like water. Put water into cup. Water takes the shape of the cup. Put water into bottle. Water takes the shape of an effin bottle.

I’m dead. This one’s a timely read for me.

Reminds me of someone. They created something beautiful but she destroyed it. ?
