and I am worth you being in or out of this


that I wasn’t actually okay with two months,

I just wanted to be because I wanted you

and that the last week has shown me that

maybe I don’t want you as much as I thought


So when you first asked to speak to me I said no,

because I didn’t want to say anything I’d regret

then I realised that all I’ve wanted this entire time

was to speak to you, that everything else was fear


Which is probably why when we hung up the phone

with “I miss you” still lodged in my throat
