    it is 9:36 on a Tuesday night. i don't know if it's still snowing, but i do know it's cold and my palms are covered in a thin layer of sweat. slowly, it eats away at my epidermis like a parasite. soon i will be nothing more than skeletal muscle and a decaying pericardium. i think this is beginning to happen already, this disintegration. it began five minutes and thirty seven seconds ago when i realized two things:
   
    you will never love me.
    i will love you all the same.

    our timelines were never meant to connect, not really. there was just that second-long contact, a chance, a lifetime in my eyes. i keep replaying that moment again and again. i don't remember what you were wearing, how your hair looked, the way your smile looked. no; all i can recall is how your skin felt on your forearm, the sound of a marker against flesh. 
    i realize that that is all we will be: a fleeting smile. a promise to keep in touch. 
    i will never kiss you. i will never get the chance to sweep the hair from your neck, and i will never understand how beautiful you are when it's raining. we will never sing along to my crappy mixed cd's. i will never see you right when you wake up or right before you fall asleep, and you will never know that i think i fell in love with you the moment i saw you, because i love you enough not to tell you.
    blue eyes. i think you looked at the ocean for too long and so it became a part of you.

    someday, you will forget about me, and i will feel it happening; and i will let go, because to love is to let go, is it not?

I think I wrote this. Like, you knew that I needed to write this, and so you wrote it with my hands because I didn't have the candor.

you have some very poignant moments manifested here, but i had to work too hard to dig them out. the blue eyes bit at the end was nice, as well as little lines here and there. but as a collective, this piece lacks a focus. the language is decent but not quite there. it lacks a sharpness that i know you are capable of. tie this piece together. remove all unnecessary wording. you are on the spur of something magnificent.

Now THIS one hits home in the worst way....

it was a difficult read for that reason, but a worthwhile one, so as to feel less alone.
