No matter what has happened, this is still worth it.


A wire tightens in my chest. Needles begin to stab through my heart creating small pores that allow the liquid to spill out. The needles are starting to compress. This has been a victory won on your part. I see that smile that you hide on your face though you pretend as if this bothers you. The blood is seeping through open wounds. Now the light is flickering in your eyes. They have suddenly become full of life witnessing this scene. Pleasure is found in what you’ve ruined. The story is over and you’ve gotten what you’ve always wanted.
This game was twisted but you played it well. I wish I could say the same for myself. But I became lost in a fantasy world that I learned I could not escape from. I made this world mean everything and willingly lived in it without wanting to ever leave. But I’ve come to realize that all of that was merely a dream and that all those memories can be washed away so easily. Maybe that is true but I will hold on to mine tightly, never allowing them to slip too far out of reach. I will lock them within my chest, tightly secured in a heart that is hidden from everyone but myself. And maybe with some time, they will begin to fade but they will never disappear completely.
I will never forget a moment that we have lived in because although I have woken up from this dream, I haven’t cleared those memories from my mind.
And I swear to you, I never will.
