Me Before You

elaina avalos, me before you, elaina m. avalos

Each day passes. Today
Like yesterday and all
The days before. Since
I saw you last, nothing
And everything has changed.
Me before you – I can’t go
Back and I can’t have
You. The words have
Flown through me as
Never before. You’re the
Only one that does this
To me. You were never
Mine & never will be. But
Me before you – I don’t care
To go back. I miss you
Every day. But I don’t want
To go back to a world
Where you didn’t cross
Through mine.
