I woke to breathe in the air of my dream. I knew it would never be mine, and yet I’d always dream it.
I masked it.
I hid it.
You were never to see for you would never feel. But I was too weak. I stripped myself from those woven lies and let you see me; the shadow of your heart.
You relentlessly took my heart from my ribs and held in your cold hands, squeezed the blood out of it, and left me with no heart at all. I wailed. I wept. But you wouldn't give it back to me.
Too late, for eternity it was yours.
I tried to hold you, but you slipped between my fingers. Never to be restrained by your love. Never to be restrained by me. And so you flew away to your freedom, leaving me ever burning in your old ashes.
