I gave all my energy to carry our broken house on my shoulders.
Exhausted, yet never gave up.
I cried my heart out, every night waiting for you, to hold me in your arms.
But, you never showed up.
I hadn’t held the sand in my fist too tight
I hadn’t even caged the bird
“What went wrong?” was all that I thought about
But you never did utter a word.
“I fear to let you go”
Yes, I did tell you so one morning.
You stopped for a moment, looked down.
But then kept walking,
Out of the door, and slowly out of my life.
You told me once,”we’re as perfect as music.” and I believed you, like always.
So did the tuning go wrong?
“Come back! I need my answers”
I shouted in despair.
But a part of me knew, you were long gone,
Maybe, you would have stayed had I known what to repair.
Days changed to weeks,
Weeks became seasons
And today, a year later..
I stand here
Sipping onto my caramel latte, which you couldn’t stand.
The wind playing with my hair
The grass brushing my feet
With just a thought in my mind that,”I gave it my all and I wasn’t at fault. It just wasn’t meant to be.”
And today, I have lost the fear to lose you
And with that, you have lost me!
