I felt the cold breeze hit my ruined skin,
The scars are getting worse and aching.
Tears flowing as if I couldn't escape anywhere else
My eyes were numb,
Knees buckled down
Hands not moving. And breathing as if almost stopped
Only one thing inside my head,
Why did you do that?
Heart begging for the warmth you gave
Mind flowing with the memories we made
My actions physically hurting,
Only to remove the mental hurt I'm facing.
Just wished for you to be there,
To tell me you'll be here
Even the clouds have gone dark
No light peeking through
No silver lining making sense
As if telling me, this is the damn end.
But I can't let it be. It can't happen this way
I have to fight. It's my fight.
Only I can win this.
Only I can rule over my fears. And I shall.
I can't let something or someone ruin me
I can save myself. But it will take me some effort.
I will need to hold onto something
But in the end, I shall breathe again
In the free air
I won't suffocate.
I'll smile with pride. I'll smile knowing I won. And it will be genuine.
