The Fall

You Were My Greatest Heartbreak

By Mercedes ChavezPublished 3 months ago 1 min read
Rose's Shadow by Mercedes Chavez

Heartache was inevitable

It was clear from the beginning

But the heart refused to be confined by the

Restraints placed on it

One good look into your eyes

And I felt my heart reach for yours

I tried with all my might to pull away

But seeing your smile

I stopped fighting it

Hearing your laugh

I could no longer hear reason

Feeling your touch

I ached for you

Your lips against mine

There would never be anything that tasted sweeter

I took a step forward

Opened my heart against all warnings

And I fell...

Already knowing how the story would end.
