The Days After You Left


I drowned myself in a sea of our memories and I choked on thoughts that wouldn’t stay away.

My white bed sheets are stained by my dreams of you, my dreams, and my tears and the reasons why you didn’t stay.

You told me that you’d always love me.

You said, “I’m yours until you don’t want me no more”.

So forgive me for falling apart when you got up and left me, for I’d just got used to the idea of you staying, but now you don’t love me like before. 

You told me you wanted me to be happy, but I can’t escape the pain, it shoots through me each time I take a breath in every night is just the same So listen to me when I say my heart is ever grieving.

The worst way to suffocate is to keep on breathing.
