all the bright places by Menal Siddiqui

i tried desperately
to take the broken pieces you handed
me and glue you back together, but
saving you was never my job anyways.

you put up one hell of a fight and though
you did not win, you fought harder than
any prince who has shown up in my dreams.

you are haunting me, theodore finch, for i
close my eyes on the top of that tower and
suddenly you and i are on top of it. together.
screaming at the top of our lungs like mad
people.

you were alive, and i was alive with you
and we were alive together.

you always said i was remarkable,
but honey that’s you. you are
lovelier than any beauty i’ve ever
seen.

thank you. never stop wandering.
