the last time

if i had known this would be the last outfit you would see me in 

i probably would have chosen different underwear

i wouldn't want the paramedics to see these worn white cotton ones

if i had known this would be our last conversation

your grief, 

your tears,

i would tell you that it doesn't hurt and pull you in for one last kiss
