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.
