It’s Complicated


Another day with him
She sits
A quiet observer, she is
His addiction consumes him
As does despair
He retreats further into himself with each breath
Every moment that passes, they move forward
Into the Great Unknown
He and she
Bound together by time
And memories
He is drowning, clinging to the her for dear life
She stares at him, silently, her eyes seeing him for the first time
She begins to peel his desperate fingers from her throat
He begins his freefall
She breathes for the first time in years
