How long till we lose?

I’ll give you an hourglass.

 

Write me a list of all the things

we will toss into the flames,

 

all the chaos trapped in my brain

when you’re in the room

or not,

 

all the simple I long for

and the quiet and the close

I know I shouldn’t want,

 

all the letters I will pin to your name

that will stay after the bomb drops-

26.

 

Now I can’t use a pen without dragging you behind it.

Ahhhmazing poem. But that last line...... killer. I mean it. Probably one of the best lines I've ever read. Great job
