I can no longer put to rest
the anxiety and panic that
fills my chest and stomach
when we are together.
Nor can I ignore the
guilt that floods in.
We had sat innocently underneath the
clear February Sky,
softly sipping our cool beverages,
sharing laughter and long forgotten memories;
A well-played act on my part.
But truth be told, I was suffocating
within the air of wrongness that
grew thicker and thicker with
every passing moment.
Our chapter had ended.
Once had been enough.
I am grateful for all that you have done.
But the girl you once knew is already gone.
