I said no

and I let go

The wall tattered and fell with you in its wake

I packed and left

I had a burden on my back but you had stolen my gravity

I did not look back

A last look at the life and I would be stone to Medusa’s eyes

I did not cry

A single tear and I would have drowned

I did not say goodbye

Because you did not know me

I’d often wished we could meet again as strangers

I remember I hadn’t washed my hair for a week when I first met you

My skin was raw and my mind chapped

I rambled too loud and laughed too fast

I wish I’d wished I’d never fool myself.

I wish I’d wished we could stay strangers.
