What would I do if you left me?

Note: This is my rather dramatic response to a question many in relationships must ask. Poetic license requested…

What would I do if you left me?

If you were to leave me — I would burn everything.

Maybe I am weak, but it would be too painful for me to walk around this world, our world, without the stabbing memory of you.

I would burn everything to see what is left, and I would pray that there was some remnant of me left that had nothing to do with you.

I would then hope…that the empty renewal of that fire might one day let me breathe again.
