The roots growing out of my feet escaped the soil as if they could no longer breathe,
And it was only when I cut the branches holding on to you,
That life seeped into me, again.

I've met people who've helped me out of all the pits I've been burying myself in and even today, every single time I look back to see how far I've come,
their faces are the lamps that light the path.

What do you do,
when you find amnesia in the eyes that taught you how to love,
fists in place of palms that picked your pieces from the dirt,
and aggression in the voice that tucked you in bed every night.
When familiarity starts stealing clothes from random strangers,
it stops smelling like the sweatshirt you stole from it's wardrobe, last winter.
It forgets things.
All the things you once wished it did, and some you never thought it would.
It doesn't hide sugar boxes in high kitchen cabinets anymore.
It doesn't keep the alarm clock away from your side of the bed.
It doesn't remember why it's clothes are in the same shelf as yours or why it has to stay up till you return back from work.
It calls you by your full name and stops mid sentence every time you forget to call it by it's.
What do you do,
oh lover,
when the only person who knew you better than your favourite ex,
doesn't remember all the things it promised it would never forget.

They said all I needed was hope.
I found it in you.

You turn my E minors to G Majors.

Maybe time owns a travel map with memories instead of countries - thumbpins as people we meet and dotted lines as the roads we travel.
Maybe the random moodswings of the universe aren't that random at all.

If my life is a party, my depression plays the best fancy dress games and I've swayed with the magician's wand for too long to know how to not.

With every tear that was shed in your name,
a part of me learned to live without you.

If I could, I would.
If I could, I would stretch the earth's orbit like an elastic band till every new concentric circle on the tree trunk,
the folds of skin masking our aging foreheads,
the rusted nails and screeching doors,
the abandoned walking sticks and faded letters on the tombstones,
were painted with more memories than years.

The world has ended;
My layers resemble the autumn leaves,
shedding one cell at a time.
My spine cracks as I kneel down to pray and my agony shines louder than my faith.
I am a cracked bottle on a broken shelf,
I choke on my own breath now.
The world has ended, for me.
