Fire flickers flames softly burn up the silence. I could hear your heartbeat. Slow. Did you forget i fought your demons late night. At times you promised to capture mine too but you got busy trying to mute the silent screams that engulfed you. You lost us. I was busy saving you. Then the rope I held on untied and took me out.
You were my air. I took in all of you. Unfiltered. I thought you’d save the pieces of the memories we built. Unknowingly. We put together a collage of broken frames. Of moments we made without course. Yet you took all of me. Laid bare.
I look at you and I wish you’d remember the depth with which I kept you. The strength with which I held on. Onto you. But you were already gone.
