Only

Only

I stumbled upon a quote recently, by an unknown author, that was a sentiment so beautiful, it inspired a short piece of my own.  The words are included within.

Sear my face into your eyelids
that you cannot even escape me in dreams
Write my life upon your soul
that your thoughts cannot move an inch without bumping into some piece of me
Be consumed by my touch
that your skin can only find wretched reprieve in my kiss
Then, set fire to my soul
and burn every last trace of you

Poor fool.

I will never leave you again…
Yet you will be so far beyond my notice.

Only through that desolation will you know how I loved you
Only in the midst of that despair will you know how it hurts.

And for that, I have nothing but pity.
