The Day You Left

The stridence of a revving engine
Powered by your key in hand
Pierced my fragile ears

My innocent eyes were armored warriors
Fighting tenacious teardrops
Because I swore to myself
I wouldn’t look back

Gravity grew in strength
With each footstep
As I forced myself away from you
Down the broken path

(Away from comfort
Away from wholeness
Away from the only thing
That ever felt like home)

(I’ve always been a bit of a masochist)

That was the day I swore my heart
Leapt out of my chest
And into my throat,
(A suicide mission)
Encouraging visible vulnerability
I tried so hard to restrain

My efforts were in vain.

Liquid pain slipped down my colored cheeks,
Burning carbon dioxide escaped my mouth
Tasting like heartbreak

I can still taste the ashes
