I need you

I dreamed of you


“I dreamed of you. I breathed you in to keep you close, the last piece of you I could cling to. You lifted me up out of the darkness and filled my lungs with water. I choked, betrayed but you were far away. Clawing at my skin, I cried for you. Desperate for air, I reached for your ghost and found my hands empty. The concrete was cold as I emptied my lungs to fill them with crisp cold air. Empty and isolated. All those around me, oblivious to the betrayal of our love. Oblivious to my still beating heart taunting me in your grasp while you fled far, far away. I cried for you and it fell on deaf ears. And I awoke, alone and afraid of a world without you.”
