Nell – Holding onto Gravity

>by Eduipe

The footfalls are strangely heavy.
I feel as if I sense the weight of the air.
As if the entirety of the world’s gravity sojourns in me.
Even though I try to turn while
holding back a tear,
biting down on the lips,
My heart still faces towards you, and I hold you in my eyes.
Sure, still I am subsumed with you.
The heart is strangely heavy.
I feel as if I sense the weight of the tears.
As if the entirety of the world’s melancholy sojourns in me.
I wonder if I can forget,
The words that sweetly tickled me,
The words of “I am happy because of you”.
I wonder if I will forget,
The words that would icily pierce,
The words of “please let me go”.
I wonder if they can be forgotten.
If you stay,
If you leave,
The end is always the same,
In the end all is towards you, at you.
