In this whole damn world"-Robert Pattinson "Never Think"

I observe you as you
Shake away the cobwebs,
Shedding the past shapes
In which you were formed.
Shapes made of memories
That convey to me.
I choke, seeing what falls.

Our life,
Our happiness,
Our lo--

I understand now.
It's gone forever now.
You're gone forever now.
I need to live with that.

Flames lick at my charred heart,
Despite desperate efforts
Against the ash it becomes.

I bring back memories;
Snapshots of painful fights.
Collages of red wrists,
Burned by your rough grasp.

I see what you’ve become,
And I’m okay.
Only for mere seconds, but
I’m. Okay.

Relationships are hard sometimes. Forgetting them can be harder.

You're getting better.

The repeat of now two lines is a row is a bit weak though.
