Aries – The nights are getting longer and your voice isn’t enough to cover this skin; but I’m happier now even though there is less of my heart left.
Taurus – If a broken piece of light is called a rainbow, maybe your broken heart is the thorn that’s been kissing these forests back to life.
Gemini – She doesn’t want you to fix it, she just wants to talk about all the reasons why it hurts.
Cancer – We could be the best thing that never happened to each other.
Leo – The problem is you go to bed lonely for so long you forget what it’s like to reach out and feel a dream instead of a blanket playing every definitive shadow onto blushed cheeks.
Virgo – I know I’m loved, but it isn’t by you, and maybe that’s why my throat always closes every time I try to talk about happiness.
Libra – I once saw the sun in your eyes and though I can’t taste spring when your lips are signing my hands, I know I’m made of more you than me.
Scorpio – The problem is, I don’t know which beat followed you too close to the shore, but you’re still on my mind even though you’re not in my heart.
Sagittarius – I could be surrounded by a hundred thoughts, yet all I can still feel is you.
Capricorn – Who am I when you’re not thinking of me? These thoughts are empty pews of memories waiting for a prayer soft enough to fill the floor with a color that doesn’t reflect a threaded collar.
Aquarius – Sometimes I close my eyes just to see if you’re still there.
Pisces – How long have you been looking at your hands, trying to remember what it feels like to hold something beautiful?
