You faded out,
Stopped coming around.
And I just let you go.
The turbulent world tore you away,
Stealing your smile from me.
But it was never mine.
Not when I told you my secrets,
Not when I kissed your arm on accident
When we saw that bee.
You and I are made of different stuff.
You’re light and bright and kind.
Happiness is enough for you.
I’m murky and solemn and thrive on emotion.
Thrive on pain.
I walked away,
And you just let me go.
