Each day escapes him, lips untouched

by her kiss. He tours through the alley

way, praying for an accident. ‘Take me

out of this existence, transplant my soul

within her distance.’ Provoking the walls

with bloody punches, begging to crumble.

He wallows into his apartment, frustrated.

Knowing she’s on the plane that carries

her further away from his cold body.

Replaying voicemail’s, staring at empty

photo frames. What was, what could’ve

been. He let her go, she wanted to

stay. ‘I pushed her heart away.’

  3. Well, I can say this certainly spoke to me. It’s sad because sometimes no matter how deeply you love or how devoted you are, it’s just not enough. Thank goodness for hope. 🙂
