It was all a tease,
the way my heart perceived a quiet place when my mind was at ease.
I felt peace.
Another moment like this isn’t guaranteed,
so when our eyes are laid upon one another, take precious care of the sight you see.
In due time, it’ll be a distant memory.
Be in the moment,
indulge in me.
But when you come near,
my spirit flees.
The emptiness is so loud,
it inhabits me.
I remember when we would sit
upon the clouds of delusion,
thinking your heart was a perfect fit for mine.
I was blind.
Sharp triggers would move those clouds aside,
brought about rain this time.
I had no idea how
we would survive these tides.
You told me you would save me,
I don’t believe that this time.
I was the only one fighting
to keep peace in our lives.
There came a time
I was saddened by the lack of light inside
so I focused on the better parts of you,
let the rest drag behind.
And I felt fine.
But it hurt to see the better parts of you were solely in my mind,
and the light that kept you visible
were stolen from pieces of mine.
