Darkness

I’ve changed.

Changed my thoughts.

Changed my feelings.

Changed my life.

I loved you more than myself. Put your life over mine.

Just for a taste of your darkness. Just for the caress of your fingertips.

But I was drowning in your fears. Falling deeply into the abyss.

Sinking into the cold void. Too far away from the sun.

Now I’m leaving, without saying goodbye. Because if I stay, I just might touch your face and take the dark plunge again.

I might disappear into the intoxicating darkness of your body.

As long as I’m with you, I’ll never be safe. As long as I’m with you, I’ll always be lonely.

I have to break free and rise to the surface. If I go my own way, I’ll be able to breathe again.

When I go my own way, I’ll never be alone. Because I want to live in the light again.

I want to feel it on my skin again. I want to go home again.
