Certain Things || Poem

"I miss certain things,
Like the way her eyes
Smiled with her laugh.
The way she loved, 
without looking 
At my face.

I miss certain things
About the way she moved,
Like she could push
Volcanoes in her way.
The way she talked 
Like she could 
Blind a man.

I miss certain things.
Things I never got to see.
Things I only heard about
From others who have
tasted her nectar.

I miss her.
And she doesn't even know
My name."

(Excerpt from a book | Scenario: The idiot fell in love)

"Hold your head up, child. 
Do not speak about what you saw.
Nobody will believe you, 
They'll all think you caused the fire.
Tell them, it was just an accident
And that you didn't mean to do it. 

Hold your head up, child. 
Dare you not cry about the blood. 
Everyone will think you've lost 
Your marbles.
Tell them you didn't know fire 
You didn't know they'd all end up
