"Initially I might feel guilty

but the wonder of never knowing what star to steal from your eyes is

Overwhelming

Like the crystalline memories that only shatter upon the ground

When all it takes is a single touch

One word

Another cut

And nothing but the dust of you remains

So I choke on the ashes of what might-have-been

Realizing,

You were never real to begin with."
