We stayed up that night,
That night we were together.
I knew something was wrong,
and I know you could feel it too.
Caught up in our memories,
We let emotions flare;
We fought, clawing
at each other’s vulnerability.
By the time I knew it,
We were completely disconnected.
It was the hardest night of my life.
And when I woke up,
Eyes opening from the consuming
Blackness of despair
You were gone and I was left alone.
I need a way to heal these wounds;
