I crawl out of myself to hear from you

to feel you, to talk to you

trying to hurt you like you hurt me.

 

You wanted to end it all,

the pain was sharp, pointed through my chest to my back

and the time

 

     Has                       Slowed                                Down

 

“And leave no traces behind

with prolonged goodbyes”,

that stayed in my skin like an illness

for days.

 

I stepped a step ahead to believe it’s over

and as the sun set,  

the details came back to me in my bed.

 

Crying and aching.

Healing and hurting.

Complaining and deserted.

 

You have a way of ignoring the pain

as if our feelings were never the same.

I loved you, you enjoyed me.

Life is short to you,

this pain’s too prolonged for me.

 

My hands have missed your hands

let me touch them, sense them, and see what they feel like

tell me

it’s alright, we both are going to be alright

tell me

that you miss you and me.

 

But you say you are happier,

hurt to me

stretched my capacity to feel pain.

Tell me

the pain was same for you.

 

I fear running insane

my body hurts from the pain

 

Come

 

     he

          -al me,

 

     rel

          -ie

               -ve me.
