I wish to escape the night.
It relives old photos,
a memory of a random dance and
your smile and your arms
that have been my home for almost 7 years.
The same smile that
I wish to see when I walked on the aisle.
The same arms that
I wish to wrap me with warmth after a tiring day.
In a flick, you’re gone.
Just as how your promises
were easily said.
Your shadow casts in every place I go.
Our laughter echoed,
on the walls of the cathedral.
On my mind,
I constantly battered myself
in replayed memories and with
negative words in loops
‘I could have said or done better.’
But I was tired of trying,
of losing myself in exchange
of loving you.
I’m tired of chasing
when all you want to do was run from me.
The phone hangs up again,
my messages can’t get through,
wine, booze, and friends will cheer me up
and for a while,
I can forget.
But the loneliest time would be falling asleep,
where we used to say I love yous.
