I Came Back With Less Than I Left With

Work Text:

When I left home
Left my stagnant life briefly behind
To go on an adventure with you
It was supposed to fill something in me
It was supposed to awaken something
That had been lying dormant inside me
It was supposed to fill me with life

It wasn’t supposed to break me
It wasn’t supposed to shatter me
It wasn’t supposed to rend my heart to pieces
It wasn’t supposed to leave me empty

But then,
It wasn’t really the journey that did that
Was it?

It was you

You filled something in me
Awoke something that’d been lying dormant
Brought me to life

And when you died
It broke me
Shattered me
Rent my heart to pieces
Left me empty

You gave me my spirit
Only to take it away
