I wake up, and for a second, I can still feel you.
And then I open my eyes.
My bed is still warm from our night before,
But I can’t stay in for too long.

A vivid memory haunts me;
A memory of you leaving me.
I wanted you to promise that you’d keep faith in us.
You said you couldn’t promise that you wouldn’t leave.

You watched me fall apart.
I could feel you,
But you wouldn’t touch me.
I’m not even sure this broken heart still beats.

But here I lay,
In a paralyzed state of no-return.
The blood runs cold still,
Some chasing after you.
I didn’t mean for it to happen this way.

You deserved the world,
And I was always terrible at giving it to you.
I hope you’d understand me.

But here I lay,
Wishing you would have stayed..

I wrote this only last night while I stayed up thinking about my boyfriend of now, 2 years and 3 months. We had our first big fight the night before. Inspired by thought.
