Walking away

I have ended things…
Walked away from people more times than I can count.
But never have I felt that I was walking away from LOVE, until you.
Yet, it still feels like the right thing to do.
And so I can’t look back…
My heart won’t stand a chance if I do.

“Loving you was the most exquisite form of self destruction”

our love…
exists.
our love exists,
behind closed doors,
behind four walls
that push up against my lungs
squeezing until I suffocate.
our love exists while you
stand there and stare,
open mouthed
unable to accept
the fact that you denied
a delicate butterfly
the right to take off
that you set fire to a field
of tulips that were begging
for new fallen rain.
you touch me with electricity,
but i am used to this burn.
i am used to this broken feeling;
the feeling after your wings have been
plucked off
and every last layer of skin
has been set on
fire.

How do I walk away

How do I walk away
How do I leave you behind
I dont know how to pretend
Pretend you don’t exist
Pretend I don’t love you…
Holding on to you seems foolish
But letting go feels illogical
How do I let you go when every fibre in my being tells me you are mine
Mine to me
How do I abandon these memories when thoughts of you so easily invade my mind
How do I love another when my heart is filled with your essence
Tell me
How do I walk away
How do I leave you behind
