I remember the words you’d told me last summer when you wanted to leave
I remember them well
I’d asked why
And you’d said
“There’s this pressure on my chest and in my heart
And I’m finding it hard to breathe.
I’m no longer sure of what I can do in life
I’m not sure I ever was
So let go of my hand and let me see where I can go
Let me leave”
I’d wanted to hold on to you
The same way you’d held on to me when I couldn’t breathe
But we were suffocating together
Choked hearts and clogged minds
You were the smoke in my asthmatic lungs
The same way I was in yours
