City Light

Listen to: 10am Gare Du Nord // Keaton Henson.

Listen to the people when they tell you not to lick his wounds.

He is not yours to care for

and although you wish he wanted it to be you he loved in return,

he did not choose you.

It’s 10am and he left around 5 this morning for a train home

and you’re halfway through thinking

this is how it’s supposed to be.

Ingénue,

you are an enigma—

there are understood desires of trying to be released from unrequited love,

but you still stand on the edge of the platform,

waiting for him.
