The world was silent. For a minute it paused and froze as he twisted in the air. All the voices echoed inside him, inside what was left-
When the days are cold
and the cards all fold
Nothing he did now could change the way gravity pulled him, the way the wind whistled in his hair. He looked up, and he saw her, standing on the ledge, witnessing this.
I want to shelter you
I want to hide the truth
It surprised him that it hurt-that there was still a piece of him that could hurt. He hadn’t told her. He didn’t want to pull her further into this mess. She had seen and shown him his darkness and he could no longer bear knowing what was eating him alive.
Look into my eyes Don’t get too close, it’s dark inside
It’s where my demons hide it’s where my demons hide
When the lights fade out
This is the curtain call
And she stood alone, knowing.
