everything left but you

if i could i’d love you in reverse leave notes in your purse so you wouldn’t forget me but it’s too late now i can feel myself becoming a stray thought on a tuesday i am being erased by increments one degree at a time whatever thumb prints i’ve left on your mind fade get washed away broken by the tides of oceans that used to divide i’m land locked and blue forgetting me forgetting you loneliness is nothing new it was here before you were ever in my bed my head my hands reach out to stay the beating of a single heart where there used to be two i’ll never forget you’ll never forgive i’ll never know why we chose to live like this apart and incomplete with a foreign sun ripping apart and burning up our atmosphere you’ll be where you are and i’ll stay here until there is everything left but you.
