Epilogue of Love (Revised)

There was something so vulnerable in the ending
Laying, curled around each otherís feet
Unable to look at each other
Clutching at the memories of yesterday
Like they were the air we needed to breathe
My face buried in the nook of your ankle
Inhaling the warm, familiar scent of 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 glistening with starlight, unseen
Against your skin, I kissed the memory of your ankle
Took a shaky breath, and let go
