UNCLASP

I embraced your ripped edges.

I broke off pieces of my soul,

So it would fit with yours

Like a jigsaw puzzle.

I dug the ground under my feet

And brought forth the bones of my past,

So we could wallow in self pity

Together.

I built walls of denial around me

Every brick weighed down by the next,

So we could live alone forever,

Like you wanted.

But when the time came,

You rose from the ashes,

Leaving behind the dark embers,

Smoldering.

You walked over my broken pieces,

While climbing out of the hole

And walked through the walls,

Leaving me alone.
