Why…?

because you. 

because I loved you.

because I got lost.

because you were my roadmap home.

because you knew every line of my palms.

because my hands were imprinted on your heart.

because I held on too tight.

because I couldn’t let go.

because I was afraid.

because we were tearing ourselves apart.

because life started sweeping us up like pieces of litter in the wind.

because I saw myself as worth less than trash.

because we were trying to bury ourselves beneath the earth. 

because we believed that’s where we belonged.

because you wanted us to be alone in the darkness.

because you thought that’s where I’d find you whole.

because you knew I would follow you.

because you knew I would stay.

because I needed to save you.

because I thought that would save me.

because you became my dark world.

because I became blinded by your power.

because you stole my light.

because you weren’t there after all.

because I was never going to find you.

because you were always gone.

because I clawed my way through the dirt enough times to know you weren’t there.

because I was trapped long after you left.

because I believed your lies.

because I believed only you could save me.

because I knew no other way.

because I loved you.

because I thought that is what love was.

because you told me it was so.

because there was nobody else.

because nobody knew.

because you.

  1. I am left with a lump in my throat and a pit in my stomach…’because I clawed my way through the dirt enough times to know you weren’t there’-really hits home….(sigh) there is such a sad realization in knowing that we’ve spent so much time looking for something that wasn’t there….the repetition of the word ‘because’ is very effective in helping drive home this sentiment…sad but beautifully written
