I yearned for you when every cell was dark and grim
I pleaded with every fiber that had lost all hope
And, you came.
I was ignited like the flames of the afternoon sun
And every piece of me ached to be near you.
Still, you had to go
And sadly so soon.
You inched further from my rays
And I grew dim
Counting each footstep
I screamed silently for you
I stood, clinging to the only bit of air I had left
Each bit of my heart fallen astray.
Engulfed by darkness
I stood, remembering each move you made.
