I took my heart and brought it to her, she said she'll take care of it and welcomed my shattered pieces. She brought me joy every day. We walked the highways and the byways, holding each other in agreement that we will continue to trod this life together...
Then I looked at my side and she was no longer there...
I looked around and she was nowhere to be found...
I held her too tight,
Clinged too much,
And devoted too seriously...
My heart wanders
My soul searches,
My ears intently listens...
But she is gone.
Like my breath that she took with her,
Like my heartbeat that she dragged along with her,
Like my hopes that she both gave and shattered.
This is the deepest pain I've felt because for once in a very long time, I thought otherwise.
I understand all of these,
Her own troubled journey,
And the weight I had added to it...
I understand, but I can't accept.
I cannot accept the fact that when things go hard, people let go.
People let go.
