Back of the line

The world breaks at night, my promises never do,
I would put myself on the line, break the curfew.

I whispered, “I adore you.”
“I don’t need that,” he laughed at me,
At this hour, it’s too late to argue.

Even before coming here, I knew I finally found someone,
My emotional support daydream,
My strength to swim upstream.

I overthink, he says he gets me.
I run away from my problems, so does he.
