impulse 36

I promised the moon, the stars, 
the clouds, the sky, all of them, 
I promised them I would never 
stop looking at them, never leave 
them. But, she looked at them 
too, and I can’t stand to remember 
her. I’m sorry my moon, for 
breaking my promise, because 
when I look at you, I feel more 
alone than not. I am sorry my stars, 
for you are too bright and you just 
remind me of her, and how she 
made me feel large, bright, and 
finitely infinite. I am sorry my clouds; 
I loved you the most because you 
have your own kind of self, where 
you fill up my world and make me 
feel safe. I am especially sorry my 
sky, my father, the father I wanted, 
for I have betrayed your teachings; 
to always look up, that you are not 
the limit, that forward is always an 
option, and backwards is not. I am 
sorry to all of you for betraying your 
ways, and I am sorry to her, for not 
being enough for her, and for me. I 
am sorry no one loves as much as 
I do, that people love more than I do, 
and no one really loves me the way 
I love them, the way I love you my 
moon, my stars, my clouds, and 
my sky. I am truly sorry.
