What Stays

The poem in runic, posing with my photogenic fidget spinner

What Stays
Your whispers linger on my skin

A symphony of broken promises

Drifting on the wind

When I asked through my tears

How you knew where I was

I still remember what you said

“You and me have a connection”

“I’ll always know where to find you”

Funny the words that stick

Because that’s all I hear

Late at night, when I can’t sleep

That’s when your arms reach for me

When I melt in your embrace

And your beautiful voice sings that song

The one that made me cry

My love for you is a torture

I wouldn’t wish it on anyone

After nine months, almost ten

The pain is still as sharp

As my first taste of your true colours

But don’t mind me

I’m just the girl you’ll never want

Remember, that annoying one?

When she’s feeling down

It’s your words that hurt her

Yeah, she still loves you

How sad is that?

But none of it matters

Not anymore

Because you’re there, and I’m here

We’re done

Our ‘connection’ is severed

If it was ever there.
