Unsaved

on the
nights
the few
nights

i manage to stay
afloat

i think
about
the
past

and its influence on

the
present
what
it has

amounted into

the people
that
stayed
and

those that left

it
is
easier
to

leave than stay
sometimes

save
me
somewhere
other

than in your phone storage

take
a little
bit of
me

be generous now

don’t
overthink
it
दोस्त

take as much as you want

delete
photos
videos
to make

space for me

and
enable
your
last seen

for you and for me

it
is true
that
all of

this is hard

being
friends
with
a voice

is not easy

especially
when you
knew
me

i was different,
wasn’t i?

i looked
felt
seemed
tasted
spoke
differently

this voice in your phone

in
your
head
no,

i am not
a fantasy

you
forget
that
despite
the
distance

we made it this far

from
childhood
to
adulthood

why are we slipping
backwards?

i want
to
move
forward

with you online

travel
explore
discover
so much.

with the assurance

that
you are
part of
it all

i search for you

in every
crumb
lick
touch
word

i am tired.

i just
want
to
hide

under my blanket

i just
want
to
delete

you

file
save

saved in my memory

locked
up
till the

next time you

haunt me.
