I gave in

to the sound of a home and the eyes of a hurricane.

Destroy me, I whispered,

But you never would.


I thought.


I wasn't looking for anything that night

when we found one another.

In a room full of lust and future regret,

I chose you.


And you chose me.


Words transformed into a sea of feeling emotions

that I never asked to feel with someone

I never asked to meet.

But I was so content.


You said you were too.


A month without you but the old messages

reminded me that you would soon be back.

You weren't going anywhere, you said.

We will be together.


Why aren't we together?


I can feel you slipping away one silence at a time

as I try to find a way to escape the pain caused by

you.

Don't leave, please.


Don't leave.


I wasn't looking for anything that night

when we found one another.


I suppose you weren't either.
