It's been ages since the wind raised goosebumps on my skin; the sunset, a blush on my cheeks. It's been long since a cigarette on the cold floor of the terrace, under the stars and the cars below, has made me fuzzy and warm. It's been ages since my bed has creaked with a weight other than that of my heavy heart. It's been quite some time since a song has played with the rosy bruises on my lips. It's been long since a glass of wine has melted my veins, the ice from his mouth, burning traces and paths to his passion on my skin. It's been months since tears have come to my eyes, and dried there, on my eyelashes. It's been some time since insomnia has knocked on my door, and yet here I sit, whining, at 2:41am.
Dear love, it's been ages since I've been unloving you.
