It’s a still and moonless night, and my breath is light and shaky, as it fogs up the last mirror I’ve written your name on. Glass has filled my lungs, and i lay along the rain kissed grass with paint on my wrists, and a heavy heart. The windows you used to look out of to watch the beautiful earth slowly change, have all cracked and caved in. You can no longer see the life outside through them, but you no longer try to. I apologize to all the memories that have tried so hard to die, but I held them so tight and refused to let go. I kept them alive far beyond their will. I tried to plant roses along the wilted leaves that lay beneath the tree, where we used to lay. But the sky ran out of rain, and the sun fell short of light. The stars have dried out from lack of moisture from the rainless sky, and so have my eyes. My heart is anchored down underneath your abandoned ship, I tried my best to swim, but you never taught me how. Its a dark and starless night, there’s thunder beneath my skin and lightning in my veins. As each new wave is born above me, they drown me a little deeper, and steal away more of my soul. Ill fall asleep tonight beneath the lonely waters, with words in my eyes and memories on my tongue. Ill drink the forgotten sea air, and swallow the razored wind, just so I can try and feel something again
