In the darkest of despairs
Full emptiness
Shallow depth
Where am I?

I know not the name for this place,
This place left in someone’s wake,
I dare not mention this person’s name
Nor even this person’s gender…

Gone. You are gone.
And you share this place with me
On the other side of eternity
Perhaps we shall meet again someday
But I’ll make sure you don’t know me…

I do not regret leaving you.
It was what I had to do.
But in your wake, you have left…
Something, I know not what…

I am sure your chasm is deeper
For you are falling, falling, falling,
And you have always been falling
In love with me.

But I had no choice
But to break all your ties
I wanted you to stop falling
But your burden was too heavy
And I could not pull you onto the ledge
Where I stand.

I let go
You weren’t so quick
And I fell.
And am falling.
To where I do not know.
You are lost to me.
You are gone.
You are lost to me.
You are gone.
Lost.
Gone.

But the memory lingers
Go away.
The memory of you will not leave me…
Get out of my life.
The memory stays with me…
Go away and let me be!

And someone asks me how you are doing
I do not know you.
So I say, “Who?”
