If I really thought about it

Avatar Author: Jesse Blake What fascinations there are on this planet. Read Bio

If I really thought about it, I would miss her sliding perfectly into my arms, like a puzzle piece meant to be next to me. I would be more lonely in a queen-size bed. I’d see it was an infinite love beyond my understanding. I’d see how quickly stable loves gets taken for granted.

If I really thought about it, there’s a lot more tragedy to be uncovered in our eyes. I’d find my apathy is just a poor substitute for the pain I pretend doesn’t exist. I’d see this hidden mourning is slowly poisoning my roots.

If I really thought about it, maybe I’d find it was all my damn fault. Maybe I’d see the parts she did wrong. Perhaps I’d find it was bound to happen.

If I really thought about it, I’d see that she’s s now buried under many thoughtless layers, in a place where I can no longer reach her.

    I think your first line is your best one, and the second one also works, but it doesn’t read as well after that. More images like those first two would be nice. A picture is worth a thousand words, after all!

    Yeah, I was worried the repetition might be… repetitive. I was experimenting.

    Agreed. You have some very nice imagery in the first two lines.
