And then she left.
She closed the door to never come back.
The time well spent, it is sealed and forever forgotten
behind the walls of an empty room.

The windows that remain closed, 
now keep the air from flowing.
Chocking the endless memories once shared.

She is gone leaving behind a time capsule that shall remain shut.
She took a different path.
Now all there is left it is a trail of
broken opportunities.

She discovered a new direction when you held a sharp stare.
She walked away, giving you back your freedom.

Without a chance, without no more to say,
she gave you up...
As you wished.

Without trying she gave up everything.
Closing the door behind her.

Now you live and go on...
feeling it is because of her,
you get to breathe another day.

You are free.
Everyday you live but,
it feels like it was her last breath of happiness you took as she died.

She did what she could to make you happy.
At your every request, she was. Lived.

But for you.
With one thing only, to get your life back.
