you asked me why the flowers in the vase don’t need sunlight
and were disappointed when I told you
it was because they are already dying.
I wasn’t always the girl who looks so pretty during the day
and shakes when she writes at night.
I’ve never felt more like a carnation in a mason jar of water.
this is the the only way I know
how to say sorry for still writing about you.
that I’m still pushing flowers into the sunlight,
still buying packages of salted sunflower seeds
and planting them in my garden,
still plugging in christmas lights that have blown bulbs.
evidently I don’t let things go as easily as you do.
my mom says closure is when empathy tucks you in at night.
when I began writing I would read little paragraphs nervously to her
and she’d say, “you didn’t write that”
while kissing my cheeks as I swore that I did.
evidently it’s not normal to feel life so hard.
if you ever want to know what it felt like to sit on that pier without you
remember the flowers in the vase,
remember how they are dying so beautifully just for your pleasure.
I wasn’t always an apology you’ll never read.”
