I’m Sorry

I’m sorry

I know you don’t believe me

Mavuno Mashiriki 045

 

running out of your skin

Trying to catch yourself

stop yourself from falling apart

 

Since you don’t trust my lips

They remind you

Of everything you’ve been sitting on

 

Fighting against the need to breathe

because that’s all you know

 

Stories that died within you

Flames that couldn’t last any longer

 

It’s not fair

That you toss and turn

Each night

 

I’ve been haunting you

I’ve been haunting me too

I sleep eyes wide open but heavy

 

It’s hard to erase

Something that comes so easy to you

 

I’m sorry

That you stopped breathing like you used to

 

I’m sorry

That you stopped seeing yourself

Disappearing in the mirror

Struggling to trace yourself with your fingertips

 

I know I did that…
