I saw your face quite unexpectedly,

The aftermath has me reeling,

I try to remember how to breathe,

Memories spinning in my mind,

Trapped in a whirl wind of emotion,

I see the laughs, I feel the joy,

I see the fights and feel the agony,

I remember the love, the warmth,

I recall the devastating loneliness,

I hear the screams, I taste salty tears,

Though I walked away, the bond in my heart did not sever,

Though I cut the toxicity of you out of my life, I feel the poison linger,

I see you drowning in your self-made desolation,  

I desire to save you…

Though the guilt of your demise weighs upon my soul,

I cannot be your liberator,

I cannot be your crutch,

You are the leech that drinks my life’s blood,

And now I leave you to die in the pit of misery,

You have created by alienating me
