Epilogue of Love (Original)

There was something so vulnerable in the ending
Laying, curled around each otherís feet  
Like children hiding, afraid, in the dark †
Unable to look at each other and yet  
Unable to let go, holding on to one another  
Like we were the air we needed to breathe  
My face buried in the nook of your ankle  
Inhaling the warm, familiar scent of you. †
I couldnít bear to look at the exquisite sadness  
In your eyes that always had my resolve †
Coming undone, melting me down to my core  
Where only you existed, my knees buckling under me  
To fall at your feet, face upturned  
To gaze at your magnitude with everything I possessed.  
How could you not see the depth †
In which I loved you?
And in the silence of my arms wrapped †
Around your feet, I was nothing more than a child  
Trying to hold on to her favourite teddy bear †
Frayed, and torn, and falling apart  
Smelling of must and decay, with undertones †
Of nicotine and whiskey. My eyes leaking starlight  
Glistening unseen in the darkness, I kissed the memory of your ankle  
Took a shaky breath, and let go. †
