Slow Motion

I wish a thousand blessings on you For not hesitating

Life in slow motion.
I always made mistakes
Forgive me. Truth be told
I have been weak for some time
But you know this. We believed each other
And it was beautiful
Until the weight of my own darkness
Touched your shoulder. Silence
For me is passion
Passion for me is
When you come
I wish a thousand blessings on you
For not hesitating
For bringing me closer
All I have to offer
Are the moments not
Forgotten. I am empty
As I was. Drowning
like a dumb puppy.

I don’t know how to be touched

Forgive me.
