...nameless...

He tried his best to be perfect knowing he couldn’t. 

He did everything in his power,   

from making her watch the stars with him

to talking over the phone till sunrise,

to writing letters.

 

He kept trying to be a someone for her

someone who cared for her,

someone who cheered her,

someone who encouraged her.

 

and all she did, if she did at all, was to make it harder for him

she severed every new thread he wove

she shut every door he knocked

she built walls, placing the bricks as gently as she could

 

What drove her away, she knew not

What drove him closer, he knew not

What would become of them, knew no one.
