We tear our souls in half
Being together.
We sacrifice our happiness
To cling to the past.
We watch the lives we built around each other
Crumble into pieces.
We know we should left it go
But we are too afraid.
So we destroy ourselves
Ruin the possibilities.
Just for the familiarity
Of the other's heartbeat.
I know what I must do.
When you turn your back
I run.
I run until I've gone numb
Run out of tears.
I did the necessary
To save us.
