Outside the leaves turn yellow and I’m struggling My mind becoming my enemy, replaying memories from a time which doesn’t exist to me any longer Two years ago we became one, something I never imagined We spent days and days together until you asked me to move in with you Two years later and five months since we broke up yet it’s all I think about Cascading liquid tears fall from tired eyes as I remember the life I never wanted to leave behind My eyes are mourners, dressed in black visiting the gravesite of what we were, together Each blink is a silent goodbye to pieces I’m still not ready to leave behind How do you stop loving someone who gave you everything and seemingly took it away just as fast? Those moments my heart remembers despite fleeting time and energy Fall apart, fall asleep and dream of then when leaves changing colours meant falling in love with you and building a family. A family I still see almost every day, but it’s no longer mine. So yes, five months after the fact I’m still coming to terms with you being gone. Feelings I cannot control and memories hovering like an unresolved ghost. I am haunted by what we were and the fact that you can still look me in the eyes after the way you left without a second glance. Twenty-nine years old doesn’t make heartbreak any less significant and difficult. Perhaps someday I’ll be able to make sense of being alone.
