Circles

When was the last time
You spinned around in a circle
Till your head went in circles?
Till everything turned into a blur?
Till you feel you could collapse?

I remember rotating on an
Axis when I was 7.
I wonder why this seems so familiar then.

Because every day with you felt like I was spinning. Going round and round and round.
I was your orbit. I spun around you.

Capital

You know, every time I turn off the light
And turn to the side of the bed I whisper your name
I don't even think about it
I say it and then I hate myself for it
I don't need you.
I DON'T NEED YOU IN MY HEAD 
I DON'T NEED YOU IN MY BREATH.
So please.
Leave.
Break the rest of my heart. 
I will get myself a new one.

An Eclipse

I touch the window. 
I watch the sky that grows red. It's an eclipse. 
The sky lights up with the hues I loved you in
Not quite the colour of blood. It looks like sunlight through clouds at dawn,
It's like the day at night.
You are the sun every day. The one that lights up the day.
But no one wants to see you.
You would burn them.
But today, you are the moon. 
You are the one everyone wants to see.
I am the sun today. 
The one that is tracing out your silhouette,
I will watch over you today, from a million miles away.
