2 Years

2 years.

It's been 2 years.

And as I sit,

I drown myself in tears,

Eyes deep red,

Cheeks stained black,


Are all I care about.

I never would have thought about you

I would have gone to sleep safe and sound

If it weren't for your song.

On contact

No matter how much I hated you

It made me love you

All over again.

I realized how badly I need you

Not just for protection

For comfort

But as to not take a bullet.

Instead to sit for hours

And ponder

All and every detail

Surrounding you.

I'm a mess,

A destruction,

A wreck without you.

Five beats of a song destory me.

Yet you don't see it

You don't care.

You choose to walk away

Pretend I'm not here.

Your baby, good girl,

Your world.

You're mine.

Two years.

It's not nothing

But it's everything to me.

Can you remember?

All that time ago

When you asked me

A simple question

That changed

The rest of our lives...

You hugged me in the snow;

Like you had always wanted to do.

I was your first.

You loved me

But that was two years ago.

And we melted.

Our reinvention burned everything.

Maybe there isn't anymore.

Maybe there was only two years ago,

With one hug in the snow,

And one simple question.

That December 4th

At 8:40 pm.

The moment

That cost us

A lifetime.
