We stood far apart. As the day began to set behind all that I adored about you and I and this and we. And left us drowning under this wave of silence sinking deep. Sometimes you get so lost that it takes the worst to bring you back home. I took any light I once had for you. Sparked it like a signal flare and drew my escape across the sky.
I'll follow it this time. When I needed you to pull me through. Where were your hands? You just left the moment rusted out. Where were you? I'll scream it out from this misplaced and forgotten voice. That steams from a heart that has all but room for you. I won't bruise the street as I run away for the last time.
I disappear here.
We were not supposed to
be apart. But I'll learn to live without us. We were not supposed to be alone. But in the end I will start to live. Now I know you were the motion my eyes weren't meant to see. Now I know you were the piece that would never find its fit. On this day, in this life.
I've got lungs that don't breathe for you. On this day, in this life. I've got lungs that don't breathe you in. You became everything they warned me about (they warned me about). You became the worst part about me.
I would so much
rather forget you than forgive you.
