Define

Written by Jacob Ibrag

‘I need to leave and talking about it further isn’t going

to change a thing.’ Standing in front of the door, he opened up

his arms and pleaded for reason. ‘Just help me understand, define what

these last few months have been. I’ll be better, I swear!’ Getting on his knees,

he looked at the floor below as it collected his tears. ‘There is nothing you can

do,’ she gently whispered. ‘I wasn’t forged for a place like this and a person like

you. You deserve someone that is real, a soul that is capable of unconditional

caring. I can’t define the past few months, just know that you saved me.’

As she closed her eyes, an energy portal appeared in the window,

‘I’ll see you in my dreams, you beautiful human being.’

  1. as he gets back up, wiping every saline in front of him with all his breath, he took her in his arms and kissed much gusto and embraced the woman in front of him. ” I accept your admission of tears, and will keep loving you here.” He took what is left of his heart and left with having his keys in front of him.

  5. Some people tell him to hate her,
    She led him on and he should be mad at her for leaving,
    Some say she wasn’t good enough for him.
    But she was.
    She was the best person for him.
    He found in her someone who understood
    Who could look into his soul and not shy away from what she saw there
    She opened hers to him as well, and he loved every bit he saw
    How can you hate something so beautiful?
    How can you stop loving someone like that,
    Even when they’re gone?
    The best part, though,
    That which makes the pain worse
    That which makes the pain worth it,
    Is that, in the end,
    He understands why they can’t be together.

  10. β€˜I wasn’t forged for a place like this and a person like
    you. You deserve someone that is real, a soul that is capable of unconditional
    caring. I can’t define the past few months, just know that you saved me.’

    – a poet told me this line once. well not exactly but the thought. and this makes me sad.

    Good work again. πŸ™‚ </3

  11. As those distant words,
    flow throughout those hidden dreams,
    echoing portal,
    the loving laughter
    quietly screams..
