Leaves fall, and eyes close
Breathe in, out, in. End.
Scars fade, but some stay
And the ache to hurt mends. End.
Lips lock, meals missed
But alone is best. End.
The need for a wall,
The dependence of it all fades. End.
The pit in your heart, it
Becomes a well. End.
Screams are frozen in the air and blood is left unflowed. End.
Bruises pulled back by the elastic band of
time, erased. End.
The black shroud that has been there for
So long, is stamped into nothing.
But so are you.
