"There is no greater agony than an untold story within you" - Maya Angelou

Our love

sparklers aflame, 

riveting, dancing, brilliant 

until the sputter, the wind

relinquishes its light, abandons us 

to cold, still air, the taste of smoke

on our tongues, hair risen, toes curled, 

bidding goodbye to distant wishes, we 

let them fade into residue.

You were the one

who told me to let go. 

I sought to please you and you took

a piece of me as you let, heart trembling,

breath strung likes threads of hope caught 

in a web of lies, disappointment, entangled 

in the past and future, never the moment, 

yet enduring, still pursuing

something to feel. 

Our love 

just another 

shade of blue.

I wanted to explore what it would be like to fall in love and have to let someone go. There's a pain in it I can only begin to understand through means of art and poetry.
