Into Darkness

"I've forgotten," you say in rhythm with your heartbeat.

And I want to ask what, what you've forgotten, but the dying light in your eyes tells me you wouldn't know. The dying light in your eyes fades with the sun, and suddenly we're thrown into darkness, and you laugh. But you aren't laughing. You're crying. And I cry with you.

"I've forgotten," you say in whimpering sobs.

"So have I," I whisper. "So has the world."


  1. Sometimes crying comes easier than laughter. Sometimes its the same. Even the sound is identical, and so is the emotion.

    You write so beautifully.

  2. You're brilliant, darling. Thank-you. xx
