Embrace Me

As I sit here,

Holding back tears that threaten to pour from my eyes,

I try to forget about you.

 

It was early November,

We had just moved in together.

Oh, how happy we were together.

Why had I thrown that happiness away?

 

On the night of November 21st,

You proposed to me.

At first it was sheer happiness that I felt,

Until I came back to reality.

 

I could never forget the look on your face,

The way your expression went blank,

And tears starting brimming in your eyes.

 

I tried desperately to ignore the regret that I felt,

When I handed you back the ring,

When I threw away everything that I had.

 

You reach out to me,

Holding my hand tightly,

Begging me not to leave you alone.

 

As your arms reach out to me,

For one last embrace,

I pull away from you,

Watching as you drop your arms,

Knowing that you cannot change the decision that I have made.

 

As I look into your sad eyes one last time,

I turn and leave you there,

Sad and alone.

 

After that I tried to forget about you,

About how much I loved you and regretted leaving you.

 

Ten years after that experience,

I realized the mistake that I had made,

Travelling back to our old home and hoping that you still lived there.

Oh, how wrong I had been.

 

What once was our beautiful home was now in pieces,

The only thing left there being a small, delicate diamond ring.

Picking up the ring,

I stare at it,

Hoping that maybe it could give me some sort of sign as to where you were.

Oh, how wrong I had been.

 

I never found you again after that,

And I gave up looking for you.

I knew that even if I found you,

You would feel such hatred for me that you could not bear to see my face again,

Not after what I did to you.

 

 

As I sit here,

Holding back tears that threaten to pour from my eyes,

I try to forget about you.

I always wish with all of my heart that maybe I could see you again,

Maybe after you have drifted away with the rain this Winter has brought.

Maybe you could stay with me,

Up there,

And wrap your arms around me in that one last embrace that you never got from me.

 

So as I hold this knife in my hand now,

Holding back tears that threaten to pour from my eyes,

I forget about you.

But before every memory had disappeared from my mind,

Please, my love, embrace me one last time.

Embrace me, my love.

Please.

Embrace me.
