I kept you warm from her blizzard.
Kept you afloat in her ocean.
I kept you alive in her warzone.
Kept you sweet in her salt.
But I can’t do that anymore.
As the days passed, everything became numb. I couldn’t feel my hands but I saw them shaking, yearning to hold yours.
My heart stopped beating, for it couldn’t find a reason to do so. My body didn’t crave for sustenance anymore; it was craving you.
I’ve waited for you for too long. There were too many nights spent crying, too many days spent wishing. Too many tears spent on nothing. Too many chances not taken. There was too much pain.
I have to free myself from the hands of grief.
I have to move on.
I’m begging you to forgive me for walking away, but I can’t let you hurt me anymore.
