The City

As I enter the city, memories flood. 

Songs that I used to replay over and over just because they reminded me of you. Times where I grabbed onto your arm and leaned on you because you were my comfort zone. 

Laughs we shared, songs we sang together, jokes we roasted on each other, moments of intimacy. 

But now, all that’s left are memories. Because you left before I could even ask you not to. Before I could show you how much I cared. 

And so now the city leaves a cold mark of our past. Where the flowers and trees that once blossomed have turned into stern old branches. Where the warm spring breeze that hit our faces as we held hands, became the cold crispy wind that swirls by. 

The city is so busy, yet leaves my heart so still. Every place reminds me of you. Nothing is the same. Yet every time I come back here, it almost feels like it is..except without you in it. 

Life as we know it, slams us with trials and obstacles. But I would have never guessed you were just another chapter, another obstacle. 

And now here I am, present in the city that once held our laughs, our dear memories. I won’t ever see this city the same, as long as you remain..in my thoughts forever.
