Innocent

Cut, maimed, and hollowed. As though a heartbeat never existed beneath that fabric of youth and desire; those bittersweet memories strangled in a war led by you and me. And so, a globe that once swirled around me cracked in the aftermath of our broken fairy tale.

The slope tilted, and I found my horizons blanketed by a soft white that rescued me from the roars of my own haunting. What was once a nightmare realm, became my only salvation.

And there you lay, on a queen-sized frame of your own design, dreaming that I would turn around and fill that empty place to your right. Praying that I would be the next message on your phone screen to break up the dark.

But darling, I am no saviour.

And darling, you were no innocent.
