    You were no good for me.
    I was probably no good for you.
    Exhaustion chases me
    snapping endlessly at my heels
    as I move wearily onward.
    You weren’t here for my birthday.
    I wasn’t there for yours.
    The wish was made without witness
    in silence…
    I want it all to turn out well
    but failing to believe
    I just beg wordlessly for an end.
    Suicidal, maniacal and full on lost.
    I’m such a mess.
    I’m so alone.
    And none of it matters a bit.
    Not ambition
    not death of purpose
    not the fact that
    I only had for a moment
    something I thought I wanted
    for a lifetime.

    When I read this I had the image of two people, man and woman, slowly backing away from each other.. every line they would take another slow step backwards towards the opposets sides of a road..

    I liked it.
