My Room Suffocates Me

My room suffocates me.
The earrings he gave me are stuck to my wall.
The picture of us is glued to my dresser.
A card that expresses his love haunts next to it.
His large and warm hoodie takes up a space on my floor.
My favorite jacket he gave me clings to the edge of my bed.
The bracelet that symbolizes our love now chokes my hand.
All the memories of us talking when time didn’t mean anything,
Place pressure on where I sleep.
All these things I used to hold so dear now suffocate me
Because the love you gave me,
Has turned cold.
