All the signs you've shown, and all the sorrows after the moment slowed, until you finally broke. She could wait the moments out, maybe stay again this time, until those moments buried you alive.
She used to say "it's easy. it feels like coming home", so why is it you feel like you've been wandering alone?
All the ones you left and tried to hide beneath it would only turn to tears of your own. You were solitude and lies: seeing with eyes that won't turn their sight to the inside.
She used to say "it's easy. it feels like coming home, and all the empty wandering and all the pain you know will fade into the hours, and when you've held it long enough, will fall and be far below you."
