You look me in the eyes 

And you ask me to let you go. 

To not make you try any longer. 

But I can't. 

Because I don't know how to live without you. 

You were my best friend, always there. 

When I was screaming or crying you let me fall in your arms.]

Who will I lay with when I can't speak? 

Who else can I sit in perfectly loud silence with? 

I can't live without you 

But I know you cant live.

So I let you go, before it was too late. 

Before you were gone without hearing those words. 

"It's okay. I love you."

Said in a wrongful setting, 

In the back of this alley 

Whilst you grew cold. 

"I'm sorry." 

And then, that perfectly loud silence. 

That sad last beat of the flower in your chest.
