silent and numb. you're looking through me, not at me. waiting. wishing. not sure of what is to come. your words slice through me. I bleed through the pain. aching. dying. waiting on a savior. are you going to rescue me?
reaching. hoping that I can make you see inside of me. the part that is hidden. locked away under years of memories. drifting away. withering to the unknown. you're beside me and yet I'm alone.
accusations. anger. consuming my thoughts. routine gestures. hollow eyes embraced by forced emotions. missing you, who you were. did you lose yourself along the way? faded pictures left by the bed stand, memories of what we were and who you used to be.
