we were, if I might say,
a match made in hell.
fiery passions of youthful ignorance,
of grandiose ambition, pure chaos, recklessness
the oblivion of nights without ends.
we existed, always, solely, on borrowed time.
this infatuation comes without warning, fleeting, like a gush of wind,
amidst the sweltering summer heat – potential pursuits spanning continents across oceans, across cities of dreaming spires much bigger than ourselves.
we are drawn to each other like moths to a flame,
like a collision waiting to happen,
too much of the same thing, in the same way,
both good and bad
both terrible, and brilliant
as we are as people.
visions of a future beyond the walls of these hallowed institutions remain
because our interactions always come with a co-signed, pre-requisite,
expiry date but;
baby, it makes perfect sense that we should only want to live in the present.
when October arrives we will bid adieu,
perhaps with unfinished business,
and his charming smile that I’ll continue to think about for years.
we will bid goodbye,
but I am certain it will not be forever,
for we will meet again, as old friends.
him and I are the same, same old,
