The Weight

To wish I could
Go back
Go back to who I was before

The Decision

To play out my own timeline with a different _______.
To see where I could have gone on
-And of-
My own volition

Like a dream of inconsolable



Like the difference of being alone
And being lonely
The weight of this sorrow is crushing
Suffocation is my friend with whom I wait
Inhaling every dream as my endurance

Suffers loss after loss
Superimposed over a deficit of option
Finds my language is frozen

In time

The time I Lost you Forever.
