I live in the echoes of our laughter, the reverberation of a happiness that faded into the silent walls of my solitude.


When you left, you took the poetry from my world, leaving behind only the cold, hard prose of reality.


The most haunting aspect of our love story is its untapped potential, like sheet music for a symphony that was never written.


In the wake of our love's demise, I find myself afloat in an ocean of 'ifs,' drowning in waves of what might have been.


You may have moved on, but your shadow is tethered to my soul, a constant reminder of a sun that no longer rises for me.
