I told him
Not to do it
That I'd miss him
Too
Much
But he laughed
With tears in his eyes
And said:
"I'll never be enough."

But for me
He was
Always would
Be
And it hurts
Even now.

There's not a signal
In the dirt
But his body's
Too cold
Too dead
To notice.

I told him
Not to do it
That I couldn't live
Without
Him
But he didn't believe
I cared that much.

He talked about colors
Things he can't feel
Colors, always colors
Like the fear came
From a colorblind sense
Of life.

Or he just
Didn't want to see
That I'd begun to
Love him
And his leaving would leave a
Scar
But he dismissed my words
And flew
Way too far.

For his paper wings
Were like Icarus's
And I couldn't save him
Not
This
Time.

I told him
Not to do it
But he didn't
See the truth
That once he'd dug his own
Grave
Mine would soon follow
And that even though he was blind to it
By grief and sorrow
I'd surely
Be swallowed.
