In the cold embrace of pouring rain
We felt our tears flow free
And our hearts break
I pulled away, afraid of hurting you
In doing so shattering myself beyond repair
We both knew we had stolen time that was never ours
That never would be ours
We could no longer go on pretending this was what it could've been
What we could've been
but in actuality,
carrying a million unspoken words within,
were left unsaid.
Or for worse
You had to let me go
Before you drowned with me.
