I ran confidently in the path of destruction.
I didn’t care about the consequences I’d have to face,
Or how I’d feel five years down the line when all I predicted and feared came true.
All I knew was that I had to follow it.
I had to run towards you,
But I couldn’t touch you.
It’s a shock to the system –
Having to fall out of love with someone because you have to and there are no more chances left.
I can’t figure out if I did it because I had no choice or because I couldn’t bear the weight of your absence anymore.
There’s a hole there now.
I’ve wasted my youth chasing ghosts,
And I will spend the rest of my life trying to repair what I have done to myself.
“I’m so empty. You’re all I think about.”
