i wrapped myself up in you, and to what end?
i see you in everyone and i search endlessly for the fire that consumed you.
you burned me and i sleep in the ashes that you left behind.
washing you away is not an option, for you are the brightest part of me

we did not exist. still, i was alone. the lessons he taught me; they showed me the truth. he educated me in the art of loneliness – paving the way – there was no future for us.
we did not start and we did not end. never were we ever. and that was okay. warmth and a blush of red – what more could i have needed at the time?
such softness in you both that i could not look away; the same error i would repeat had you not firmly told me “no”. you are my two: you held the view that i was not strong enough to support. i acknowledge that we never could be because we are not better together, and that alone would be cause to sever.
i used to say goodbye to you – but i knew that we would meet again
the last time i saw you –
we parted ways, silently, and i knew it would be the final time
i slipped on the ice
and you helped me up
i fell in love with your nice.
yes, you’re warm and you’re nice.
you refilled my cup
yes, i smiled into my cup,
and i could feel your colours fill me up
starting warm, but eventually to shatter like ice.
You will always be taller
and I could never reach you.
Stumbling, I fall short
again and again
We decay for the final time:
You get smaller
