You knocked on my front door.

You were in tears.

I had never seen you cry before.

It was the first and the last time.

"I'm so sorry Elm"

"My feelings are messed up"

"I think I love her"

"I have to leave you"

"I don't want to"

"I love you"

"Bye Elm"

These were the only words I properly processed. The rest is just a mucked up, teary blur.

I had never felt my heart so broken.

I had never seen your eyes so sad.

How could you love me, then leave me?

How can you be dead forever?

Why didn't I stop you from leaving?

Why did I let you turn away and disappear?
