Over (poem- freeverse)
Ficlets and Ficly survivor, FicMom, and Mistress of Well-Intentioned Indecision and Goddess of Unrequited Love. @ElshaHawk @HawkandYoung
There was a time I dreamed of you
Just a smile and a hug
You sat near me, close
Never will that dream be real
I let it go when I said
That I approved
Permission granted for you to move on
Away you flew, so fast
So far, the distance grew
With every heartbeat
Your happiness was my burden
I was supposed to echo,
Happiness with you and for you
It wasn't my permission you wanted
It was my empathy;
To live vicariously through you.
You continue to drag me through
Loss, pain, depression
Which I don't deserve.
I punish myself by living in the darkness.
At arms' length
You don't even know
But the dreams I had are over.
I only wish that the pain was, too.
No prequels yet. Why not write one?
No sequels yet. Why not write one?
