The World Behind Me

photos and words by maytal

I looked into your eyes and saw the reflection of myself—the rest of the world stood behind my reflection, blurred. 

tears rolled down our faces in a synchronized pace

straight from our eyes, to the pillowcase both our heads rested on. 

during that moment I had a head full of words and thought but my mouth speak. 

words I was unable to form sealed with a kiss.

now, that moment has digested, and here I am left with only three words. 

I miss you. 

The Things i hate:

I hear the echoes of you singing along to the song in the back of my mind. 

the songs I claim to hate when you play them, I listen to on repeat because I long for your memory to stay in my head.
