Poetry

Close

Written by Jacob Ibrag

Shouting from the top of her lungs, she aimed straight

for his soul. Finally closing his eyes in full embrace, he ingested

her flowing energy. Her words, puncturing through the cage that kept

his heart prisoner and locked away.This was it, this was the moment he

would finally let her in. ‘I’m sorry,’ he whispered. ‘For the longest time, I

thought you were like the rest of them. Another soul to use me as a buffer

before finding something better. I never gave you a chance, but you never

stopped. You always stayed close, putting up with my ignorance. I need

you to know that, I’m finally listening. I need you to know that, I’ll never

take us for granted again.’ Placing her fingers upon his cheek, she swore

that she wouldn’t have ever given up on them for anything.

  3. I have all the empathy for the one who did not give up. It is truly hard to be in a place where you see the truth and the other does not. But only he has the equipment to share your vision. The eyes you saw in your dreams ๐Ÿ˜‰
