The silence between us
The unspoken anger
It was hard to breathe
But I continued my shallow breaths
If this went on,
Would I drown in this atmosphere?
The way she looked at me
The way she flinched away from me
Even though we were inches apart,
I felt like we were worlds apart
If I move now,
Would we fall apart, as well?
The way she stabbed my heart
The way she sliced me open
I had upset her,
My heart was fighting, barely pumping
If it stopped now,
Would the pain stop, too?
