you

last night,
i died in your arms

and all you could do
was stare at the ceiling
and let your mind wander beyond the walls we’d built
all you could do
was watch every brick fall out of place
the bricks we’d put together
all you could do
was try and pick up the pieces of those bricks with one hand
as you held my body with the other
all you could do
was imagine the fear, the loneliness, the guilt, the empty days and nights
my corpse still warm in your arms

all you could do
was close your eyes
and die with me.
