Some days I drown in the sea of distance you let come between us. The salt in your voice clogging my head with words that cut me to the bone. The sloshing of emotions that brim inside feel like waves crashing against my rib cage, trying to spill over the edges.
How could we let what we had slip right between our fingers, as if we were only grains of sand that were so easily let go. I suffocate underneath the pain of watching you walk away from me, A million pieces of my heart tearing apart trying to follow you. My legs feel trapped to the floor, like seaweed tangling my feet and keeping me anchored.
It hurts to know that you gave up trying to save me. Instead you left me to be swallowed up by the hole you left behind. And most days I feel so numb That I barely feel it When the riptides Of your memories pull me under.
