We Were Golden

We were golden like the leaves that fell around us.

Lost, but content with the quiet that comes with no direction in mind.

I let you in. Revealed myself to be more than what you bargained for.

Amongst the leaves we fell. You wanted me to be yours

but I can only belong to myself.

My heart feels worn from years of lust disguised as love.

Who am I without you?

I fall just like leaves. My emotions swirling in the wind. Waiting for someone else to share the same breeze.

Adrift yet wanting to stay rooted to your side.

We were golden

but I can no longer stay.
