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"
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?
