This isn't how you are..
And you lost life.
My home is in my mind.

This is a not so very vague description of how an ex of mine "ran with his tail between his legs."
You and I, we were perfection,
And the world saw us for who we were.
Aside from everyone, there was but a few
To stand in our way; Disapproval rained upon us.
We turned distraught.
Never in my life have I seen a boy chase
His tail the way you did that day.
I stood amazingly still.
Frozen feet, I watched you bite off the limbs
Of your soul. While peices of you collided with
the ground beneath you, you named them after me.
After your display of loss, you left.
I watched from over here, frozen still,
As you attempted to sew up your open wounds.
I laughed aloud when you realized you couldn't do it.
I have been sitting here ever since.
I'm still waiting for you to return...
So that I can fix what you've ruined.
When will you realize YOU can't fix what you've ruined.
You have ruined.. ALL OF THIS!
