Tethered: break me...


I'll let the work speak for itself.

.


You missed me?

Answer the question...
Then what is this?
That it?
That's all you got for me
After nine years

The silence was thick, THICK
Heavier, Heavier Still. 

…I..I..

You what, Hmmm?
Don't you dare!
Don't start apologizing now!
What is this the third
Fourth
FIFTHTEENTH time
How many guys!
How many times?

"Out."

The word flat
Cold
Unchanging

It 

The sound of a done man. 
She knew it.
He knew it. 
This was their end. 
Their last chapter

Tears welled
He stepped back 
Fist clenched
Body tense.
Daring her
Come closer.

But
There was no place for her
That distant plateau
The chasm of heartbreak too vast. 
They stood there 
She pleading with wet eyes. 
She took a step closer, he took a step back.
She hit the floor. He turned away. 
These two broken souls

Maddening silence of grief, 
A brief moment 
Their last to mourn. 
Don't
….just one
Only one….

Her arms his waist
Peace, Heartache
Tension...release
Tears flow
Knees buckle
Strength gone

They cry
Cried until
They laughed

…Mine?

Always.
Like moth to flame
I'll always lov-

Think before you speak.
Tethered… I'll always be tethered to you.
