You looked at me with sunset eyes
Teeming with an ocean’s depth
Waves were crashing down your cheeks
Tears you should have never wept

And I heard a sound I’ll not forget
The slamming front door as you left
In shock I waited as tragedy unfurled
Denial settled into the silence of my world

Without a glance or shallow sigh
You left me here with no goodbye
But in my heart there grew an ache
A pain that, most nights, keeps me awake

And now I finally realize
What I saw in those shining eyes
Not the sunset; the sunrise
So this was never a goodbye

No…

This was letting go.

And now I’m coming back.
“If you love something, set it free. If it comes back, it is yours. If it doesn’t, it never was.”
—Unknown

That quote was the basis of this piece. Just a fun fact. Hope you enjoy! :meow:

the only way for me to go back to her is if I followed her path

Ah. I love this. It's like thinking back to memories and realizing what you have and what's come back.

It does start tying itself back together near the end though.

I love your choice of words and imagery. However, the flow of the lines gets distorted at points (prob starting the 3rd line in) and ruins the overall flow of the work.

I'm going to go cry in the corner now. I like it, but it makes me kind of upset because I'm a fuck up.

An assortment of things is wrong and I wouldn't say I'm okay. I really need a vacation from myself these days. I seriously always fuck everything up, perfectly normal there.

Sounds like you need a hug. If I promise not to kill you, can I hug you?
