Kayleigh Campbell – Days turn into months, months turn into you

25I get  so sad these days,
that even my breasts shed tears.

I get so restless these days, waiting for you
that I’ve even started to pass the time,

by pulling out strands of my hair
and sticking them to the side of the bath.

These days, I stare in the mirror
tracing the dark line down my stomach;

if only I could cut it open,
pluck you out.
