You Keep Coming Back

By Rebeca Ruiz

You keep coming back,

Time after time
Not because you loved me
You keep coming back,
Because I loved you

I made you feel the universe.

When you asked for space,
I left you with a void
And now you come to claim stars
And galaxies that no longer exist within me.


Hit me, make me snap out of it
Blue is all I see.

The sky should stop trying,
Light should start taking notes.

Fire has never felt so cold before.
I have never seen such warmth be smothered so easily.

Don’t look at me like that.
