Maybe.


I’d pour all my hopes into a jar and store them in the attic, if you promise you’ll come back, tell me you’d stay. I put myself to sleep drinking a glass of water and dreams but tonight, it’s just emptiness and me. The door is half open, windows are half shut and I rummage through the wardrobe for something that smells like you. I’d take a pill, swallow my disquiet; it’s about time. Then I feel a leak in my brain, a cold feeling of ease. Is this what I need? Someday you’d write to me. Maybe.

    I’d pour my hopes in a jar and store then in my heart
    Let them out when I meet you,
    Hoping you pour out a lil of your magic potion
    And turn my hopes true!❤
