Faded memories on a drained soul
Shadows of kisses sewn into every fiber of her skin
What was she but a skeleton of pit stops
Of unbroken promises
And love and pain
Intertwined into a relationship of their own
Dancing over her heart and laughing in her face
Happily ever afters are suitcases and goodbyes.
Of vacant words and patchwork actions.
Saved for dreams and storybooks.
