It’s like learning to walk again. After you. The way you dragged me over and through. That unfamiliar night. Always back to you. That space I hadn’t known which became your new throne. But that I didn’t know. I don’t remember. I do not know.. My hero. Everyone else now in the shadows.. how did I get here. How did that happen, I don’t remember. I do not know.

And you
