Written | No Longer Mine

It was slow, like molasses,
The way you walked away.
Not a single word spoken,
You had nothing to say.

I choked on your promises,
As you made off with my heart.
I lost my breath in the memories,
As I fell apart.

I cried for every I love you
I’d no longer hear.
I cried for a dream,
That I watched disappear.

And it was a hard truth to face,
How it all came to be.
How I realized then,
You weren’t mine to keep.
