EXPECTATIONS

They say

Lower your expectations

But,

What does one do when-

The one who hurts you

Doesn’t realise the pain they’ve caused you

Little do they understand

The craving, the despair, the sense of longing in their absence…

I felt it all today.

Every single moment without you felt like a gaping wound,

I almost thought I lost you until we finally reunited

OH Internet!

What would I do without you?
